I work from Lagos as a freelance multimedia journalist, working across print, radio, television and online.

My journalism work has appeared on various international media outlets, including Huffington Post, Aljazeera Plus and Voice of America. I have also written for several specialist/trade publications such as UK based Cosmetics Business, Accounting and Business, Energy World and University World News.

Topics I have covered range from politics, conflict and rights issues to technology, business and economy.

More than 10 years active professional experience covering local and international news, I bring passion for life to my journalism work.

Always on the lookout for freelance opportunities in journalism, multi-media and communications consultancy — or just to hunch over a cup of coffee or wine with someone interesting. If you think we could work together, let's connect.


In between my journalism assignments, I capture candid moments of everyday life on the streets of Lagos and other places during my travels.

I often capture these moments with my smartphone, an iPhone which doubles as a camera in my pocket.

In May 2017, my images were featured as part of Mobo Fest, the first mobile photography exhibition to run alongside the Mobile Journalism Conference, MojoCon, in Galway, in Ireland.
