I am a reporter working from Accra, Ghana and Manila, Philippines. I'm willing to travel for requested stories. I write about politics, education, business and social issues. I prioritize stories sidelined by the mainstream press, but I will tell any story worth reporting. I've written about Western Sahara protests and polygamy in Morocco, improper university governance and racial relations in the United States, and presidential elections, the gold sector, migrants and child slavery in Ghana. Published by Al Jazeera, The Guardian, The Associated Press, Agence France-Presse, The Huffington Post, The Washington Times, and African Banker Magazine, among others.
