I’m a writer and reporter by training. I covered local politics in Canada before attending graduate school in New York, joining TIME Magazine in 1989, and shipping out to Nairobi as Africa bureau chief in 1992. I subsequently served as a TIME editor and bureau chief on three continents. I covered the Rwandan genocide, the US intervention in Somalia, crises in Kosovo and Georgia and the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, in addition to European politics and diplomacy, among other stories. I left TIME in 2009, won a Knight fellowship at Stanford, and have since been working as a managing editor of video and multimedia projects for the UN Refugee Agency in the Middle East, North Africa and around the world.
