Communications is an integral part of any development/humanitarian project or programme. A dynamic communication strategy will raise the profile of an organization by telling compelling stories, sharing engaging messages/mission statements, including brand management, media toolkits and curated social [media] networks, and fostering strong relationships with donors, partners, the public and media.

Employed as a global 'humanitarian mercenary' (aka: freelance Communication and Development Advisor) my work entails the above plus strategic planning, coordination, editing, photography, behavioural change components, and reporting. I use these elements to bridge the divide between an organization, external partners, civil society and those that matter most: the people at the heart of each and every initiative.

I've been everywhere. Will work anywhere. The bulk of my experience comes from Africa, the Middle EastSouth Asia and Europe.

I work predominantly in the field of humanitarian aid and development but this has widened to include local and international media outlets, and private sector companies.


My client roster includes: multiple United Nations organizations + International Development Research Centre (IDRC) + Danish Centre for Culture and Development (CKU) + City of Victoria + ActionAid International + CARE + Tadamon + Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP) +  International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) + Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation + International Committee of the Red Cross +  Transparency International +  Siemens + Samsung France + L'Oréal.
