About Lucy

Formerly the Multimedia Editor at HuffPost, I moved to Colombia to pursue freelance projects, and I covered social and environmental justice all across the country, for Al Jazeera, Washington Post, Greenpeace, the BBC and more. I was recently awarded an O1 Extraordinary Ability visa to move to the US, and I am now based in LA, where I am working at a documentary production company. I have previously been awarded grants to film and produce experimental 360 videos to tell climate change stories, and I have training in - and experience of - reporting from hostile environments. I am currently working on a short doc for First Look Media, filming in a prison; an investigative feature-length doc filming in LA; and a number of short news packages for Deutsche Welle, the BBC and Al Jazeera. I am represented by UTA and split my time between LA, London and Colombia.

  • Huffington Post - Whaling In The Faroe Islands

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist
    • Field Producer
    • Video Editor - News
    • Reporter / Journalist

    The Faroe Islands receives a lot of bad press for still whaling. I travelled there to find out the real story behind the tradition, managing to gain the trust of locals, who are now incredibly mistrustful of the press. My goal was to produce a well-balanced, wholly unbiased piece, which I feel I achieved. I filmed, produced, edited the entire piece.

  • Huffington Post - The Necessary Evil Of Child Labour Among Syrian Refugees

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist
    • Field Producer
    • Video Editor - News
    • Reporter / Journalist

    Along with a colleague, I travelled to Lebanon to produce a number of reports on the Syrian refugee crisis. This was an original look at why eliminating child labour is not as simple as it sounds. We worked closely with Save the Children, who provided us access to interview subjects, and we had to continually conduct risk assessments on our reporting as we were next to the Syrian border.
