I am a writer, a community worker, an adventurer, a campaigner for social justice, and author of The Undesirables: Inside Nauru (Hardie Grant, 2014), an account of my work in Nauru with asylum seekers. I currently work for a settlement service in Sydney while I write as a freelancer and assist as a committee member of PEN Sydney. My second book, Nauru Burning, was published in November 2016. I will return to Afghanistan in 2017 to write another book for Hardie Grant.
This website is a literary space for my wanderings: a collection of writing devoted to the investigation of our world and the global village of people and cultures within it. In it you will find my self-published blog posts and a collection of my published articles from publications such as Foreign Policy, World Policy Journal, Huffington Post, New Internationalist, VICE, Mamamia, New Matilda, Conscious Magazine, Roads and Kingdoms. Enjoy.
