In 2019, I taught a multimedia course at Sri Lanka College of Journalism, in Colombo.

I’m a journalist, humanitarian, and media consultant based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I’ve spent the last decade building the capacity of newsrooms, NGOs and social impact organizations from West Africa to Southeast 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 talks, and by providing digital media training, workshops and mentorship.

I believe in the need of community media in humanitarian development – working with aid workers, local journalists, and media outlets in Africa and Asia. As a journalist, I’ve worked with CBC Radio-Canada. As a media trainer, I’ve worked with InternewsFarm Radio International and Journalists for Human Rights.

I’ve conducted media trainings and workshops for International Media Support, Fojo Media Institute, DW Akademie, Vikes Finland, USAGM, TNI, WVL Myanmar and UNESCO Bangkok.

My writing has been published in Al Jazeera English, The New Humanitarian, The Lancet and The Guardian; The Toronto Star, Montreal Gazette and Calgary Herald; The Bangkok Post and Prachathai in Thailand; The Jakarta Post in Indonesia; The Star in Malaysia; Cambodia Daily; Himal Southasian in Sri Lanka; New Naratif and Splice in Singapore.
