I’m a freelance journalist, writer and editor currently based in Guyana, South America. My interests include grassroots projects and social enterprise, environmental sustainability, and arts and culture.
I have been working in the media for ten years, first as an editorial assistant, then sub-editor, and now writer and editor. I have also produced radio pieces for BBC World Service, led media workshops in schools and managed social media campaigns.
This has involved everything from managing the BBC’s Peabody Award-winning Ebola WhatsApp/Facebook services, to writing about a cafe for recovering addicts in London, to visiting NASA’s Johnson Space Center for Channel 4’s BAFTA award-winning series Live from Space.
