Frontline Freelance Register
Cairo, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
I’m a multimedia journalist passionate about telling stories through text, photos and video. My work has been featured by Foreign Policy, Newsweek, The Economist, Quartz, and others. I started working as a photographer on conflict and human rights issues while interning and copy editing at a small newspaper in Sana’a, Yemen in 2012.
After finishing my bachelor's degree in International Relations and Middle East Studies I moved to Tunis, Tunisia. Over 2013 and 2014 I covered the politics of the country's transition to democracy, as well as many social and environmental issues.
In early 2015 I moved to Cairo, Egypt, where I served as the Editor in Chief of a small energy newspaper, managing both local and foreign staff. I have continued to report for various publications on political and social issues in both Egypt and Libya. Currently I’m also a fellow with the Earth Journalism Network, working on a series of features about climate change and its effects on Egypt.

Pumps like the one shown draw water from aquifers, accelerating the problem.
