Experience

I am a Canadian journalist and documentary filmmaker. Since 2005, I have worked internationally, concentrating largely on projects based in West Africa, as well as Eastern Europe. During this time, I have directed, produced, shot, and/or edited more than 20 films - traveling with all my own equipment and learning to find creative solutions in sometimes challenging situations. I also spent time reporting for a local newspaper in Ghana, helped present a human rights radio show in rural Cameroon, served as a multimedia trainer supporting local journalists across Liberia, and was hired as a ghostwriter, co-authoring a novel that took me to three different continents. Along with my own projects, I often undertake work for NGOs, and produce news and features for various magazines and online sites. To date, my work has appeared in a range of publications, including Global Post, Inter Press Service News Agency (IPS), and World Vision Report, among others. I am currently based out of Monrovia, Liberia. Other Credentials: - Bachelor's (Honours) degree in Journalism and International Development [4 yr program] from University of King's College (Canada) - Documentary Film certificate Prague Film School (Czech Republic) - Video editing systems used: Final Cut Pro, Avid, and Sony Vegas - Language Skills: Native English speaker, moderate French
