I work as a senior journalist on the BBC News website, covering international news stories. Before this I worked for Index on Censorship, the Guardian and Reuters.
On a day-to-day basis, I work on a busy news desk, commissioning, editing and writing breaking international stories. On a particularly busy day, such as US election night, I might be running the BBC live page or sending push alerts.
However, when I get chance, I love to work on slower, long-form pieces.
I also co-created a BBC podcast series, Fake Heiress - an investigative docudrama, which won a creativity award at the British Podcast Awards.
And in a past life, I was a travel writer for magazines, broadsheet newspapers and guidebooks.
I am currently based in London, having previously lived in Washington DC and Buenos Aires. I speak Spanish (and rusty French), and have a particular interest in Latin America.
