His most recent work has seen him cover the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, the situation facing female survivors of war and genocide in Rwanda and Iraq, life within Kibera (Africas Largest “slum”), and several animal welfare projects. He has worked with The United Nations and a wide-ranging selection of NGOs including, Mothers 2 Mothers, Wild at Heart Foundation, Women for Women, Trócaire & The Free Yezedi Foundation, among many more.
