Adam training

I’m a journalist and media development advisor living in Thailand. This follows over five years of work in East Africa and East Asia.

My journalism reflects the change I want to see in the media, by working in communities, covering stories with global impact at a local level.

I’m developing world media by giving media literacy lectures, and by providing journalism training, workshops and mentorship. I put emphasis on the need for community development through collaborative human rights reporting and peace building journalism.

As a journalist, I’ve worked with CBC Radio-Canada. As a humanitarian, I’ve worked with InternewsFarm Radio International and Journalists for Human Rights.

I train journalists in multimedia skills and humanitarian principles. I develop training resources and ICTs (information communication technologies) to assist media organizations, especially radio stations and online media in developing countries.

I freelance for CBC Radio’s The World This Weekend. I’ve contributed commentary, reports and documentaries to German public broadcaster, DW WorldLink, CFRB NewsTalk Toronto, CJAD Montreal and Joy FM in Accra, Ghana.

My writing has appeared in The Guardian.com, Al Jazeera.com, Montreal Gazette and Calgary Herald newspapers. I’ve also contributed to IPS News Agency and Barza Wire (formerly Farm Radio Weekly).

#Malaysia: Snapshots of #KualaLumpur. Along with my nasi lemak I had a ‘buah kedondong’ also called Ambra juice to non-Malaysians. This sweet green concoction helped subdue the spicy sambal inside my mouth. Village Park restaurant, Damansara Utama. #KLeats
