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 youth media literacy talks, and by providing journalism training, workshops and mentorship on a range of topics. I believe in the need of community media for community development.

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 The World this Weekend. I’ve contributed commentary, reports and documentaries to the German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle DW WorldLink program, CFRB NewsTalk Toronto, CJAD Montreal and Joy FM in Accra, Ghana.

My writing has appeared in The Lancet, The Guardian, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Herald, and online at Refugees Deeply and AlJazeera.com

#Indonesia: Snapshots of #Medan. When you miss Bali you find restaurants serving Balinese cuisine in Sumatra. This is my nasi bakar ayam (grilled chicken rice). Holyduck, Medan.
