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 multimedia journalism training, workshops and mentorship.
I believe in the need of community media for community development – working with local journalists in Africa and Asia. As a journalist, I’ve worked with CBC Radio-Canada. As a humanitarian, I’ve worked with Internews, Farm Radio International and Journalists for Human Rights.
I train journalists in multimedia skills, humanitarian principles and human rights. I develop training resources and Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) to assist print, broadcast and online media in developing countries.
I contribute regularly to CBC Radio-Canada and Al Jazeera English. I’ve been published in The New Humanitarian, The Lancet and The Guardian in Europe and the U.K.; The Montreal Gazette and Calgary Herald newspapers in Canada; Bangkok Post in Thailand; Jakarta Post in Indonesia; The Star in Malaysia; New Naratif in Singapore; and Cambodia Daily.
