About


I am an independent journalist and producer based in East Africa and working across the continent. I've reported on issues from terrorism to migration flows and the impact of climate change. My work usually lies somewhere in the intersection of identity, politics, and state-building in the region and comes in the form of photography, videography and the written word. 

I can be reached at christina@christinagoldbaum.com
