With a background in community-driven development, I've honed in on media and communications as a tool for community development and social change. Through work and research I've explored themes of participatory communication and development, ICT4D, documentary storytelling (film, radio, and photo), and development of the media itself. Currently working in communications for a multi-donor trust fund, I've had the opportunity to take on a significant knowledge development role as well. I hope this unique and upcoming skillset will facilitate a future segue into C4D programming and the chance to position myself strategically to advocate for end user-first organisational policies and adaptive management of development programmes.
