HI. I'M JULIA SIMON.

I am a radio journalist based in Lagos, Nigeria. I focus on oil and gas reporting.

I have worked for APM’s Marketplace, PRI’s The World, NPR News, and BBC News. 

I spent two years  as a reporter in Egypt – one year before the revolution, one year after. I've also reported from Tunisia and Kenya, and I spent over a year reporting in Indonesia.

I speak Egyptian Arabic, Indonesian, and Spanish. 

I love economics, soccer, hiking, and old Hollywood detective movies.
