I'm an independent journalist and documentary filmmaker based in the UK. I cover conflict, crime, and politics all over the world, from east Ukraine to east Jerusalem. I make documentaries, write articles, and take photos.

I've worked for HBO, VICE News, Esquire, Frontline PBS, ProPublica, BBC News, Bellingcat, The Guardian, Wired, and more.

I've reported from Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, southeast Turkey, Palestine, Peru, Hong Kong, Kosovo, Northern Ireland, and more. 

Primarily I focus on irregular warfare, but also cover organised crime and extremist politics. I work mostly as a correspondent and producer.

I also founded Popular Front, a grass roots conflict journalism outlet.
