Role: Producer, Editor, Writer, Mentor & Co-ordinator.


The 2015 Niger Delta elections project – designed in partnership with Stakeholder Democracy Network – was an On Our Radar special feature. The project enabled a network of citizen journalists based around the Niger Delta to report on the elections using basic mobile phones.

Initial training sessions were delivered in November 2014 and in the months that followed, over 130 reports were published covering the run up to and aftermath of of the election.

The citizen reporters investigated what communities on the ground wanted from their new government, reflected on a successful democratic transition, and flagged local instances irregularities, violence or intimidation.

Their stories were regularly picked up by international media.

Role: Producer, Editor, Writer, Mentor & Co-ordinator.


Citizen journalists across Sierra Leone reported on their Ebola experiences throughout the 2014-16 Ebola crisis. This blog details the award-winning coverage.

I trained, mentored and co-ordinated a network of reporters across the country, as they reported stories from the heart of the outbreak. I also developed written content for Al Jazeera Online, the Guardian, Channel 4 News Online, Sahara Reporters & Vice News, amongst others. Audio-video content sourced and produced independently for BBC World Service, BBC Outside Source, BBC World News TV and CBC Radio.
