Media Production | Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida Area, US
I have always liked a good story. As a demanding toddler, I wouldn't fall asleep unless my parents read me endless bedtime stories. From Babar and Moomintroll, I quickly established that stories were my favorite thing.
I went to university to study stories; in its modern incarnation, we call the field 'comparative literature'. But after sitting in windowless libraries for four years, I had a hard time relating all the wonderful things I had learned.
Sitting in my ivory tower, I realized I wanted to learn real stories and tell them to real people.
So I started writing about pretentious indie music for the school paper. Then, I moved to Oslo, Norway; wandering the streets trying to find good tape for my radio show.
I have since moved from Washington D.C. to Ghana in pursuit of a good story.
Now, I'm a journalist and aspiring bon vivante currently living in Tampa, Florida.
Before becoming Florida's youngest snowbird, I was a writer and producer at Global Halifax. My work has also appeared in the Toronto Star, Daily Xtra and the Chronicle Herald.
As a human rights journalist in Ghana, I tested my boundaries as a reporter; surviving a riot, threats and two bouts of malaria.
My unusual career path has been highlighted in alumni publications at the University of Alberta, the University of King's College and The Washington Center.
Journalism is ever-evolving and I aspire to evolve with it. I'm always looking for new skills and insights on the industry.
