Foremost, I am a writer. My passion for writing grew into a career in journalism, which evolved into photography, research, communications and digital marketing.


My current role is Digital Campaigner for the Australia Tibet Council, an organisation that works for the freedom and human rights of Tibetans.

On the side, I offer photography services. I’ve also recently started the journey to becoming a voice artist.

I returned to Australia in 2018 after living several years overseas in Cambodia and Germany. In Cambodia, I worked as Communications Officer for the Cambodian Children’s Trust, a community development non-profit. In Germany, I worked as a freelance journalist and photographer, completing projects for clients such as Deutsche Welle and Momondo.

My journalistic focus is on forced migration, human rights, social justice issues and the environment. I have reported from Australia, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Morocco, Germany and Greece. This website showcases work from in-depth features to travel stories, photo essays, scholarly articles and commentary pieces. Publications include: Deutsche Welle, The Huffington Post, Fairfax newspapers, The Diplomat, Arena Magazine, Inside Indonesia, The Phnom Penh Post, Morocco World News, Asylum Insight, the Griffith Journal of Law and Human Dignity and the Refugee Law Initiative. These articles have been republished on various online platforms and have been translated into languages such as German, Spanish and French.

I have a Master of Refugee Protection and Forced Migration, from the University of London, and a Bachelor of Journalism, from Griffith University.
