I’m a freelance journalist, writer and editor from London currently based in Guyana, South America.

I write about the environment, culture, arts, social equality and grassroots projects for BBC Latin America & CaribbeanMongabay, Visit Guyana, Explore Guyana, and others.

I also produce radio pieces for BBC World Service, and have led media workshops in schools and for would-be journalists.

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.
