I'm a Dutch award winning freelance journalist, videographer and one of the founders of Lighthouse Reports.

I work as a freelance reporter in conflict areas and countries with repressive regimes like Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Somalia. My work has been published globally in newspapers, magazines, on websites, and TV channels, most notably: Al Jazeera, The Telegraph, Trouw, Nieuwsuur, EenVandaag and France24.

I won the Dutch awards De Tegel and Best Report Award in 2016 and I've been nominated for the 2015 Bayeux-Calvados Award for War Correspondents in France. My work has led to further investigation by the International Criminal Court, the United Nations panel of experts, a Human Rights Watch report and political investigations.
