AFTER A SHORT BREAK FROM PHOTOGRAPHY...
Following a bike accident, years of physiotherapy, a lot of metal in my foot, and hours in an anti-gravity machine to learn to use my new foot, I returned to my camera. I have lived and worked in Mexico, Central America, Canada and Europe, with a focus on migration stories.
I now live in Mexico City. There is something magical about Mexico that drew me in; it is a photographer's playground.
Before working as a journalist and photographer, I worked as a UK lawyer for 9 years. I have a BA in history, a law degree, a postgraduate diploma in business psychology and a masters in war and psychiatry, specializing in ISIS and the the trauma of war. I speak Spanish and English.
I have also completed the following courses:
VICE hostile environment training;
Investigative reporting in the digital age;
International Normative Framework in Humanitarian Protection;
Humanitarian Part 1: key issues (Disaster Ready)
Photographers Ethical Toolkit (Thomson Foundation)
