Journalist I Trainer I Photographer I Consultant with focus on Africa, Expression, Media, Culture & Politics

I have over 10 years of professional background from work in developing, post-conflict and fragile countries. I have experience from living in East Africa, where I have worked with capacity building and civic education of South Sudanese refugees in northern Uganda; support to peace building and training of media in South Sudan, and with communication and training in Tanzania and Kenya.

I have profound experience with Danish civil society in development, amongst others through advice, training and grant selection for information activities and development communication.

Since July 2011 I have freelanced in East Africa as trainer, consultant and journalist. Occasionally as a photograher, too. While I have carried out various consultancies in Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan and Denmark, I have alsp produced presentations (learning sessions, training or debate) primarily for Danish civil society actors with interest in Africa.

Moreover, I write and have had a variety of journalistic articles published in Danish media, primarily about trends in East Africa concerning politics, development, civil society, activism. media art, design and culture.
