Hi, I'm Isa. I build sustainable media organisations where people love to work.

I am also a writer, a podcaster, a storyteller, a builder, a maker and an MA candidate in public history. Don't ask me to choose. I'm available for consulting projects, creative collaborations or for the right full-time role in editorial leadership. Get in touch.

I am a journalist working at the intersection of tech and media, editorial and product, entrepreneurialism and management. I am driven to transform the news industry for the future, develop and mentor our people, build compassionate and innovative organisational cultures, and put readers and communities at the centre of it all. I love strategy and leadership, and I also still love to get my hands dirty, write, edit and make podcasts.

My career has been about building bridges between countries and between industries. I nerd out on deconstructing systems and translating between worlds that don’t understand one another, which is really just an extension of my first love as a foreign reporter. I believe that borders are gateways, not walls. I believe that truth is the most precious gift you can give and the foundation of liberty and equity. I believe in public interest journalism that fosters healthy societies, and I believe that can't happen without first building healthy newsrooms where people love to work and aren't scared of the future. That's what I strive to do.

These are a few places where I've worked and learned. Navigate the tabs above to learn more about what I can do.
