Providing support to journalists and media around the world

I work with organizations such as the U.S. State Department, the U.N. and international media development NGOs to support the professional and independent media. I specialize in working with media in conflict-affected and transitional environments.


With over twenty years of experience as a journalist, journalism educator, media development practitioner and researcher, I look forward to working with you to provide results-oriented services including assessments, formulations and evaluations. 


Some of my recent assignments have included:

  • Team lead for a capability mapping of Fiji media

  • Feasibility study of information needs of internally displaced persons in Cameroon and Nigeria;

  • Feasibility of a global safety certification label for news organizations.


I'm a member of International Media Development Advisers, a group of senior international development specialists.
