- Our Story
Roxanne, previously a CB Istanbul correspondent, is a food and agriculture researcher and writer based in Washington DC. She investigates the industrial food system’s dark underbelly with the Food Integrity Campaign and previously worked at Food & Water Watch, where she analyzed Wikileaks cables to expose the State Department's international GMO hustling strategy. In 2014, she lived in Istanbul and wrote about sustainable farmers, food activists and artisans—in between taking way too many photos of the city’s charismatic felines. She caught the agriculture bug at UC Berkeley’s Student Organic Garden in 2008 and worked on small farms in Chile and California—hence her nascent tractor skills and lusty appreciation for fresh-fried chicharrones. Her happy place is riding shotgun with a farmer in their truck/horse/cart, listening to their stories and taking notes.
