ABOUT

French-born and South African raised, I lived and traveled in several parts of the globe—working as an independent journalist, formerly in international development.

I have a passion for writing and reporting on anything gender infused—especially when spiced with environmental flavors. My work has appeared in Harper´s Bazaar, Vice, Thomson Reuters, Dazed, Refinery29, Broadly or Ms. Magazine, among other publications.​

I have traveled across South East Asia to report on women and girls on their period banned to live in mud-huts, the rise of human trafficking following Nepal's 2015 earthquake, or India’s first women’s mosque going solar. My story on violence against women environmental defenders in the United States was praised and discussed in other publications, while my piece on orgasmic births was translated into several languages and published by outlets internationally.

In the past, I’ve worked for the European Climate Foundation, the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or the European Women’s Audiovisual Network. I completed a Master’s in Gender and Development at the London School of Economics in 2011, where I investigated the sex trafficking of women and men. I am now attending until May 2020 the Columbia Journalism School in New York City to complete a M.A. in Science Journalism with a focus on investigative techniques.
