ABOUT

I am an independent journalist and filmmaker. I write, shoot and produce for leading international media – I have contributed to outlets including the BBC, the Guardian, the New York Times, Huffington Post, CNN, Channel 4, Sky News and National Geographic. I was part of the BAFTA-winning team that made the documentary 'My Son the Jihadi', named Best Single Documentary in 2016. 

I have extensive experience across sub-Saharan Africa, as well as in the Middle East and North Africa. I am a Trustee of the Foreign Correspondents' Association of East Africa – having served as Chair for two years in 2016 and 2017 – and a 2017 Marshall Memorial Fellow

Based between Nairobi and London, I can be reached at zoe@zoeflood.com.

HIGHLIGHTS

I tell stories about security, development, culture and human rights, using a range of media, including text, video, audio and photography. I report on violent extremism in Africa, in particular in Kenya and Somalia. I covered the brutal attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall in September 2013: in the aftermath, I interviewed survivors and first responders, including retelling one of the most dramatic stories of the massacre

I followed the trail of the world's 'most wanted woman', Samantha Lewthwaite, and covered the deepening tensions in Kenya's "war on terror". I exposed the earlier arrest of Woolwich killer Michael Adebolajo on suspicions of trying to join Somali militant group al-Shabaab.
