I’m a freelance journalist, writer, teacher and editor currently pursuing a Masters in Creative Writing and Education at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Alongside this, I am working on a freelance basis as a workshop facilitator with We Speak, an after-school creative writing tutor with Writing Champions, a casual library assistant, and a researcher. I also volunteer with the Ministry of Stories in Hoxton.

As a journalist, I have written about the environment, culture, arts, social equality and grassroots projects for BBC Latin America & CaribbeanMongabay, Gal-Dem and others.

My work has ranged 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.

I have also produced radio pieces for BBC World Service, led media workshops in schools and for would-be journalists, and taught communications at the University of Guyana as a part-time lecturer.
