I have more than 10 years of progressive work experience in journalism at national, regional and local press. I worked with Daily Monitor for close to 10 years where I was a reporter, Bureau Chief- Eastern Uganda and senior staff writer at the headquaters [Kampala]. 

I have hands on experience in gathering facts and organizing them to tell the story to the public on a wide range; health, social, environment, tourism, business and politics among others.

I am an award winning journalist having won the 2007 [corruption category] Uganda National Journalism awards,  the 2014 and 2016 Population and health issues category [UNFPA and National population council], 2017 journalism mentorship award] by CEO, and in 2018 won the award for reporting on disability issues by East African Centre for disability.

I am passionate about investigative reporting especially about issues that affect human beings directly like corruption, Poverty, Environment, Climate Change, Tourism, Health and Female Genital mutilation and gender responsiveness.
