Upon completion of a postgraduate diploma in Photojournalism at the London College of Printing (currently London College of Communication) in 2001, I’ve lived and worked on on the African continent since 2004, first in Nairobi, then Cape Town and currently in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Experience extends to various mediums in the industry, including photojournalism and documentary-making but my main focus is feature writing.
Published articles focus on trade, economic and geopolitical issues in Africa. Recent assignments include in-depth features for Sunday Times (South Africa), Business Day (South Africa), travel for Detour (U.K) and regular pieces for Greek Business File Magazine and Cyprus Mail on issues affecting Greeks in Africa. Other work includes features for Geographical Magazine (U.K) and African Vibes Magazine (U.S).
Work has recently pivoted towards data journalism and financial analytics.
Published photographic work includes work for the New York Times, Independent (UK), Observer (UK), Guardian, Grazia, Essence Magazine (US), L’Express (France), La Presse (Canada) among others worldwide.
Commissioned assignments included extensive work for a range of UN agencies nd NGO’s such as UNAIDS, UN-WHO, UN-WFP and UN OCHA-Somalia among others and NGO’s such as the Clinton Foundation and Save the Children.
I’ve worked as a Reuters stringer in Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan as a photographer and videographer. I was the only foreign journalist to access front-line conflicts in both Kenya and South Sudan that received noted international attention.
I have directed and produced a short 25-minute documentary ‘On the Frontline: South Africa’s Child Abuse Crisis.’
