I'm an Australian journalist living in New York City, covering culture, identity and the environment. I have reported internationally for publications including The AtlanticQuartz, VICE, i-D Magazine, Tablet MagazineHaaretzCOLORS Magazine and others

Currently, I'm working as a James Reston Reporting Fellow on The New York Times'  Climate and Environment desk. I have a master's degree from Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism, where I specialized in longform narrative non-fiction writing and environmental reporting. I love big ideas, deep conversations and human stories, well told.

Previously, I was a fellow in Italy at the creative studio Fabrica, where I produced interactive multimedia projects on migration and religion, and in Melbourne, was the deputy editor of Dumbo Feather Magazine. I also take photographs. 

In Australia, I worked as a reporter with The Australian Jewish News and Broadsheet Melbourne and received my BA in Philosophy and Creative Writing from the University of Melbourne.
