About me

I am an independent journalist, and sometimes documentary producer, living between London and Kampala. I cover gender, social justice and the arts for outlets such as CNN, The Guardian and BBC.

I have won the European Journalism Centre's Innovation in Development Reporting Grant two years running, was one of VICE Magazine's 'Employees of the Month' in March 2017, and was awarded the One World Media Production Fund in 2016.

My interests include cities, post-colonialism, hummus and all things 90s. My hero is early 20th century mega-babe Sylvia Pankhurst
