I love to tell stories, voiceover script and edit waveforms; my interests and passion. A multimedia journalist, broadcaster, writer, announcer, compère, voice-over audio producer, creative thinker, lover of laughter, truth and wisdom seeker.

A London Eastender born in Hackney, educated in West-Africa, a fierce defender of the Black star, Red, Gold and Green.

I used to roll my eyes into the back of my head listening to my dad wax lyrical about the ‘Wireless’ and begrudgingly sit down forced to watch Sir Trevor McDonald or Angela Rippon present the News; funny how three degrees of separation have come home to roost.

News junkie, wannabe documentary-maker, poet and human interest soldier; pen in hand, querty-board at the ready, mellifluous pipes poised and cognitive wheels always turning.
