Bio

In 2019, I taught a course in radio and online media at Sri Lanka College of Journalism, in Colombo.

I’m a journalist and media development advisor, trainer and mentor based in Yangon, Myanmar. This follows a decade of work in East Africa and 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 in the need of community media for national development – working with local journalists in communities across Africa and Asia. 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, 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. My writing has 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; Himal Southasian magazine; The Bangkok Post and Prachathai in Thailand; The Jakarta Post in Indonesia; The Star in Malaysia; Cambodia Daily; New Naratif and Splice in Singapore.
