I’m an American freelance writer based in London and Vermont. A former reporter for Reuters and an independent journalist for more than a decade, I’ve lived and worked in a half-dozen countries, writing about business, culture and the environment.
I’ve investigated art smuggling in Peru, visited Contra rebel camps in southern Nicaragua, and covered the ups and downs of Spain’s economy. From London, I’ve reported stories on subjects ranging from art crime to animal-rights activism to Britain’s reaction to the Trump presidency. My experience also takes on reporting from Vermont, where I recently covered the PFOA water crisis in upstate New York.
I’ve been a visiting lecturer at London’s Middlesex University, where I taught journalism in the School of Media and Performing Arts. I’ve also taught undergraduate and graduate-level courses in journalism and non-fiction writing at Roehampton University in London.
More recently, I co-founded The Story Project with photographer and book designer Peter Crabtree. You can flip through some samples of our work by going to The Story Project page on the menu bar, or go to our website at
