Hi. I'm

I'm a software engineer, professional translator, and consultant with eight years of experience working in journalism and conflict analysis. I'm passionate about OSINT tools, solving neat problems and using tech as a force for good.

About Me

I'm a full stack software developer and technical consultant based in Michigan. Prior to moving back to my home state in 2022, I lived for more than seven years in the Middle East where I worked in journalism, analysis and translation.

Today, most of my work is focused on developing software aimed at boosting the capacity of researchers and analysts. I'm also on the lookout for full-time software engineering roles.

Some of my recent open source projects include a tool for identifying disinformation networks (read my Bellingcat article here) and an AI-powered web scraper to monitor Syrian media. I'm always looking at new projects, so follow me on github to see what I'm working on currently
