This page is intended to be a professional portal and a (largely) static archive of my past journalistic work. Future projects will be archived here on an ad-hoc basis. My CV and current professional activities can be found here.
I was based in Yangon, Myanmar from 2012 until mid-2016, when I relocated to London. The vast majority of my work was dedicated to investigating and documenting this turbulent and fast-changing period in Myanmar’s history, with its tentative steps towards democratisation, ethnic and religious discord, and commercial interests – both foreign and domestic – looking for their share of the spoils.
I was formerly the deputy editor of Frontier Myanmar, a weekly magazine focused on current affairs and business.
Before joining Frontier, I was the Myanmar correspondent for The Edge Review, and reported for the Democratic Voice of Burma from 2013 to 2015.
In June 2014, my work with The Edge Review was awarded the 2014 Excellence in Human Rights Reporting award by the Society of Publishers in Asia, part of a package on Buddhist nationalism in Southeast Asia.
My work has also appeared in The Atlantic, The Independent (UK), The Diplomat, The Christian Science Monitor, and other regional and international publications.
