Storytelling is my passion.
I am a Nairobi-based visual journalist working primarily with DSLR video. The issues that move me are those of inequality: I've reported on insufficient healthcare in a refugee camp in Malawi and in South African townships near Johannesburg. I've covered humanitarian aid in the Sahel of Burkina Faso and in post-war northern Uganda. I've filmed a Chicago Emmy-winning documentary on children living in endemic violence in the inner city. Most recently, I reported on Brazilian youth protesting the social inequality exacerbated by the 2014 World Cup.
Every story deserves to be told through the medium that best communicates its essence, be it text, video, audio or interactive media. As a master’s candidate at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, I concentrated in documentary video production. My undergraduate degree, also from Medill, is in long form magazine writing. I have sought professional experience in all of these areas in order to fully explore the strengths and weaknesses of each one as a vehicle for storytelling.
