Hey guys, I'm an independent journalist and documentary filmmaker focused on crime, conflict and politics. I've reported from Syria, Iraq, Trinidad, Liberia, the Central African Republic, Mexico, El Salvador, Sierra Leone, and a whole bunch of other places. I was one of the only reporters inside the besieged city of Kobane, interviewed Central African militia leaders, lived with Syrian rebels for a week, was on the ground during Ebola's peak in Liberia, and went to church with MS-13. I've worked for everyone from PBS Newshour to Vice News to the Wall Street Journal, and I recently returned from a reporting trip to El Salvador focused on MS-13, gangs and churches that was sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, with a piece just out on the Guardian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu8ZP1DaNyM&t=27s
