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 a One World Media Fellowship in 2016.

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