Bio

Thanks for visiting my website. I'm a British video journalist and investigative reporter living in New York.

In 2015, Scilla Alecci and I directed, produced, shot, wrote and edited a 30-min investigative documentary called Code of Silence that exposed the sexual harassment of female corrections officers by their co-workers. It won the Michael and Ramelle Pulitzer Award at Columbia Journalism School's 2015 DOCFEST and was an official selection for DOC NYC, the world’s largest documentary film festival. A 12-min cut was published on the front page of the New York Times in January 2016.

I recently appeared on NPR's All Things Considered and WHYY's NewsWorks Tonight to talk about my 5,000-word investigation into the indefinite detention of young sex offenders for the Marshall Project.

Before moving to the U.S. I corresponded from Cambodia where I covered the 2013 national elections and investigated the micro-finance industry.

Other print work has been published in VICE, the Telegraph, Prospect Magazine, The Diplomat, Southeast Asia Globe, LiveWire, and others.
