ABOUT ME

I am the Paris Bureau Chief for US news agency Feature Story News. A fluent Spanish and French speaker, I have more than 10 years’ experience working in live TV, radio, and digital news. I have reported from across Europe, including from Israel in the aftermath of the Hamas attacks in October 2023, from the Ukraine border in 2022 reporting on the refugee crisis caused by Russia’s invasion, and from London in 2022 covering Queen Elizabeth’s death and funeral.

Other major stories I have reported on include the coronavirus pandemic in Italy in 2020, and anti-government protests in Moscow in 2019.

Based in France, I inform, explain, and interpret French politics, economics, and culture, and wider European news for a range of international broadcast clients. When I’m not at work you will probably find me up a mountain or wild-swimming!
