I’m a climate reporter for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, with more than 7 years experience in radio, TV and online. 

I predominantly work as a video journalist shooting both vision and stills on the Lumix GH5 and occasionally iPhone, including for live crosses. I edit using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Lightroom.

I speak Arabic, German and Swedish, with an honours degree in political science and Arabic. I’m also an avid outdoors person, rock climbing, trail running and gravel riding. 


Outside the ring of steel

ABC News/October 2020

The Victorian state government coined the term ‘ring of steel’ during Melbourne’s lockdowns - preventing travel between the city and the regions. It allowed Regional Victoria to come out of lockdown while the big city remained shutdown.

Regional Victoria became a land of its own — locked in by state borders and Melbourne’s quarantine zone, different rules applied and people made the most of it.

I travelled across regional areas doing live crosses to News Breakfast every morning, travelling each day while recording interviews and taking photos for this image heavy digital piece.
