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

I write about the environment, culture, arts, social equality and grassroots projects for BBC Latin America & CaribbeanMongabay, Gal-Dem and others.

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

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.
