About me

I am a freelance journalist living between London and Kampala. I cover politics, society and the arts. I'm also Managing Editor at Raddington Report, a new media brand based in Washington.

I won an Innovation in Development Reporting Grant from the European Journalism Centre last year, 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 hummus, postcolonialism, 90s fashion, cosmic-collage making and drug policy. My hero is early 20th century mega-babe Sylvia Pankhurst
