I'm the director of communications and fundraising with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders' Operational Centre Geneva. I was a journalist for a couple of decades before running off to join the humanitarian circus in 2006 as MSF's communications director in Canada. I've worked as a head of mission and project coordinator in recent years, managing operations that provided aid to refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Mauritania, South Sudan and South Africa.
