Journalist / Writer / Podcast Producer
Thanks for visiting my website. Whether as a writer or award-winning producer, my focus is on entertainment and cultural representation, as seen and heard in my reports for KPCC’, Marketplace, National Public Radio, The Independent , GOOD and Shondaland.com . I’ve also appeared on ABC’s Nightline.
I’m Scotland-born, of Ghanaian descent. My 20 year career is filled with experiences that the young me could never have imagined. I’ve led award-winning political and cultural coverage for NPR and reported on major international events. I’ve covered Ghana’s 50th anniversary, produced interviews with global icons like Hugh Masekela and Nile Rodgers, reported on detentions at Guantanamo Bay and on all but one of the U.S. presidential elections since 2004. I produced live coverage of Hurricane Katrina and reported from the Gulf Coast one year after the flood for “RadioNation with Laura Flanders” on Air America Radio. I was also the voice of The Africa Channel’s coverage of Nelson Mandela’s death in 2013.
Now, I’m also using my experience and perspective to help independent podcasters tell their stories in compelling ways, while creating culturally diverse content for broadcasters who want to hear new perspectives through my company My Lens Media. My projects include “Changemakers” for Marketplace, “Media Disruptors” for Public Radio International and “Home from Home” for KCET.
I’d love to work with you, so get in touch for commissions or if you’d like me to guide you through the podcast creation process.
