Providing support to journalists and media around the world
I work with organizations such as the U.N., the U.S. State Department and international media development and press freedom organizations to support professional and independent media. I specialize in working with media in conflict-affected and transitional environments.
I recently finished an evaluation of a media assistance programme in Ethiopia and will be in Liberia to do more M&E work. Earlier this year, I was the lead researcher for a CDAC Network study on understanding how Covid-19 has changed the landscape of communication, information and inclusion in disaster-affected countries.
I am thrilled to be joining Regis University as affiliate faculty for the Master in Development Practice and will be developing and co-teaching a course on media development.
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:
Learning review of the CCEA response six months after the Haiti earthquake.
Evaluation of EU-funded multi-country (sub-Saharan Africa) Covid response media support program.
Lead on support to radio/journalism division at the University of the South Pacific.
Evaluation of investigative reporting programme in Bangladesh.
Study on current status and future options for university radio station in Rwanda.
Media training and gaming consultant for IOM.
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.
