I am a reporter, managing editor, podcast host and producer and media executive with 14 years of experience working and reporting from New York and Paris, but also Chile, Morocco, Greece, Israel and the Palestinian territories.

After six years at Reuters in Paris, where I covered politics, courts, security and terrorism, I joined NewsGuard, a company fighting disinformation through human-written analyses of news sites and of the main false narratives circulating online. In the past, I have also created a podcast while a visiting journalist at Cornell Tech's Digital Life Initiative.

I produced and hosted Good Code from September 2018 to June 2020. Good Code examined the ethics of new technologies, and its tagline was: “Black Mirror meets The Good Place: tech dystopias, with a way out.”My interest in media literacy has brought me to teach workshops on press freedom to kids in public schools in New York, and to continue this work at NewsGuard.I am a former Fulbright scholar and graduated from a dual degree program between the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Sciences Po in Paris in 2010.

Prior to joining Reuters in Paris, I worked as a multimedia producer for The Economist in New York. In November 2009, I won the Anna Lindh Journalist Award for a ten-minute radio piece about Palestinian lawyers broadcast on french radio France Culture.

In October 2010, my first short documentary, “A Harlem Reprise,” was screened at the 2010 Harlem International Film Festival.I am proficient in audio/video recording and editing (Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Audacity, DAVID, Netia), photo editing (Photoshop) and social media.

I am fluent in French, English, Spanish and know basic Mandarin. I am currently trying to learn Arabic.
