It’s a big world out there
I am an established journalist specialising in travel, and in bringing positive stories from developing countries – in particular those across sub-Saharan Africa – to a wider audience.
Over the course of my career I’ve been lucky enough to report from countries such as Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Guatemala, Malawi, Uganda and South Africa. Too often places such as these are associated with bad news in the western media. I aim to help change that.
As well as my own published journalism, I have also over the years built up a network of fellow journalists based in African countries such as Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia and Zimbabwe, who I commission on a regular basis for various clients.
I also regularly ghostwrite articles and blogs on a variety of topics including women’s rights, sustainability, fair trade and responsible tourism.
