"And all I offer here is the distilled poetry of my existence..."
Claude McKay, Poet Laureate of Jamaica, 1889-1948
I have been a reporter since 1998, covering mainly business and politics. My work has appeared in a large number of publications in Canada, the U.S. and Jamaica. I have also capitalized on the many skills journalism requires to become an all-around communications specialist. My clients have included both the public and private sector, non-profit and academia.
In addition to being a professional curious person and communicator, I have a bad case of the travel bug and can't seem to stay put. Finally, I have put my skills to work as a volunteer in the community wherever I have lived. Now, follow me as I combine these compartments of my life in Kingston, Jamaica, where I will be a volunteer with CUSO International.
I am working in Kingston with YOU Jamaica, a non-profiit organization that does mentoring and career counselling with the country's youth. CUSO is an international agency that places professionals in communities where they work to promote sustainable development.
