I am an award-winning freelance journalist and social media reporter. A former managing editor at The Voice newspaper in The Gambia, and currently Bloomberg's correspondent in The Gambia, a contributor to VOA English to Africa Service (USA), and Africa in Fact Magazine (South Africa).

I am also into photography, I can transcribe audio packages from Wolof or Serer to English, and have worked as a Fixer for Swedish Broadcasting Corporation during The Gambia's political crisis in 2016/17.
