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 over 10 years building the capacity of newsrooms, NGOs and social impact organizations from West to East Africa and from South 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 multimedia journalism training, workshops and mentorship.

I believe information is aid and I’ve worked with humanitarians, NGOs, local journalists, media outlets, and social impact organizations in communities around the world to improve communication. As a journalist, I’ve worked mainly with CBC Radio-Canada. As a media trainer, I’ve worked with DW Akademie, Internews, Farm Radio International and Journalists for Human Rights. I’ve conducted media trainings and workshops for International Media Support, Fojo Media Institute, Vikes Finland, U.S. Agency for Global Media, Transnational Institute, WVL Myanmar and UNESCO Bangkok.

My writing has been published in Al Jazeera English, The New Humanitarian, The Lancet and The Guardian. In Canada, my work has appeared in the Toronto Star, Montreal Gazette and Calgary Herald newspapers. In Thailand, my work has appeared in the Bangkok Post and Prachathai, Across Southeast Asia, I’ve been published in the Jakarta Post in Indonesia; The Star in Malaysia; Cambodia Daily; Himal Southasian in Sri Lanka; along with New Naratif and Splice in Singapore.
