I am a freelance journalist based in Manchester, UK. I have the pleasure of writing about all the things that I love and care about. This ranges from topics such as the environment, social issues, the Middle East, local community news as well as political art and culture.
I have published work in places such as The Big Issue North, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, Adbuster, Ethical Consumer Magazine, SISTERS, Elan, The Arab, B*tch Magazine, Make/Shift, Electronic Intifada and Aquila Magazine amongst others. I am also the Eco-Islam Editor at GreenProphet.com which is the leading news site on environmental issues in the Middle East.
As well as a writer, I have written reports for NGO’s on issues that I specialise in and helped to edit and sub their publications. I have also been employed as a researcher to look into complex topics and help gather information.
