I’m a freelance journalist currently based in Athens after several years in Tunis. I write about politics, people, and places, often in combination. I was previously a staff writer for COLORS Magazine in Treviso. Though it doesn’t seem like it, I do occasionally travel outside of the Mediterranean.

My work has appeared in The EconomistVice MagazineThe Guardian, AllureTravel + Leisure, Teen Vogue, POLITICO, The New Republic, France24, Arte, World Politics Review, Al Jazeera, Condé Nast Traveler, Quartz, Al Monitor, and others. My journalism has been supported by Fabrica, the International Women’s Media Fund, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s Incubator for Media Education and Development, and the Alfred Toepfer Stiftung. I was the online editor for Tunisia’s pavilion at the 2017 Arte Biennale di Venezia, and I’m the author of Moon Guides: Athens and the Greek Islands (Hachette Book Group, April 7, 2020).

In November 2022, my piece ‘A Matter of Honor,’ a multi-year investigation into a triple femicide that happened on the Greek-Turkish border, was published by The Atavist. You can listen to me talk about reporting that story on the Creative Nonfiction Podcast and with the Incubator for Media Education and Development.

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Political Science. I work in French and English, and can order sandwiches in four more languages, with varying success.
