About Me

DSC_0468.jpgI’m a British-Irish-Indian freelance writer and journalist, based in Beirut since 2011. I worked as a full-time reporter for Lebanon’s English-language print national The Daily Star from 2012 to 2015 and have contributed to publications including Al Jazeera English, The Economist, 1843 Magazine, Monocle, The National, The Outpost and Canvas magazine, among others. My photographs have also appeared in The Daily Star, The National, Al Jazeera English and The Economist’s 1843 Magazine. In February 2016 I was one of three winners of the Anna Lindh Mediterranean Journalist Award for intercultural reporting.

  1. I discovered your blog via 1846. Love your witty informative posts.
    Curious; how did you come to be named after a country, India?
