ABOUT

I'm an independent journalist and documentary filmmaker based in the UK. I cover conflict, crime, and underground activity all over the world. My work is always unfiltered. No frills. I make documentaries, write articles, and take photos.

I've reported from Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Palestine, Armenia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Kosovo, Northern Ireland, and elsewhere.

I've worked for HBO, VICE News, Esquire, Frontline PBS, ProPublica, Harpers, WiredThe Guardian, and more.

Primarily I focus on irregular warfare, organised crime, extremist politics, and underground culture. I founded and run Popular Front, the best known grassroots conflict journalism platform. 

My investigative reporting has won a DuPont award.
