Hey there, I am a freelance journalist who mainly works out of the Middle East, mainly in the Kurdish Regions of both Iraq and Syria. I have been everywhere from the Mountains near Iran to the frontlines in Manbij. From the beautiful cities of Erbil, and towns like Kobani which became symbols of resistance to tyranny, to the ISIS sleeper cell filled cities all along the way while embedded to the Syrian Democratic Forces. I hope to show the truth behind life in this beautiful place while I am out there while also working as a journalist.
