- If you’re looking for someone to work with you to help promote your organisation or its projects through the media, then give me a call or drop me a line.
I cover everything from copy-writing to film-making, including media relations, social media and media training for interviews or print.
See My Story for more details of my experience, but in short:
- I am a journalist with more than 20 years experience of telling stories that make a difference – particularly those that wouldn’t normally be heard.
- I have worked in the press office of an international NGO, for a local newspaper and run my own business since 2005, specialising in Media Relations and PR for charities and the not-for-profit sector.
- I have produced three films, the third of which I also wrote, filmed and edited. It’s called It’s Not Easy and tells the story of Millennium Stars FC, a grassroots football team set up in Liberia by war-affected children, in their own words
- I’m currently writing the story of Millennium Stars, which I hope will be finished by summer 2015.
Since 2012, I have contributed regularly to the online magazine known as The Good Men Project. I began to get interested in the topic of ‘men’s liberation’ a few years ago, and it stayed in my mind for some time.
I then wrote a piece about what it meant to be a young man growing up in the developing world, from conversations I had had with Millennium Stars Team members. It was published by my friends at Proexposure, a wonderful organisation, doing photo training in the developing world, acting as an agency for their protegees and promoting their work and good examples of photo work on their blog.
I thought I was a lone voice pondering how modern man was coming to terms with all the changes in traditional roles, but after publishing ‘What a Piece of Work is a Man’, I heard about Good Men Project – an organisation that was already doing that across the globe!
All the other blogs I wrote for them I have also posted on my own blog here.
Some pieces I wrote before I knew about blogs and technical wizardry – about working in Ethiopia teaching English to former street-children in 2009 or a four-month visit to Spain in 2005 which included working on farms and walking the Camino de Santiago are linked below:
