I am a foreign correspondent based in Nairobi, Kenya. I have lived and worked in Africa since 2004 and am currently a correspondent Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Monocle magazine and a contributor to The Economist.

My reporting has been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Kurt Schork Awards, One World Media Awards and Prix Bayeux.  In 2008 I was named Journalist of the Year in the Diageo Awards.

My magazine writing and long-form journalism has been published by Harper’s, Foreign Policy, Columbia Journalism Review, Delayed Gratification, Earth Island Journal, New York and Virginia Quarterly Review, among others.

This website offers a selection of my work from across the continent over the years. I hope you enjoy it.
