I'm an award-winning Independent Journalist currently based in Ifrane, Morocco. With an M.A. in Visual Anthropology, I bring a unique sensitivity and curiosity to the many cultures I visit around the world. With a microphone in one hand and a camera in the other, I collect stories for public radio and images for various outlets.
