I`m living in Quito and working for Viva having just enjoyed three months traveling in South America. I love music and play the guitar and flute (whilst attempting to add the charango, a bolivian folk guitar, to my repitoire). I love to write and hope to make it into a career in journaism. I`m a Christian.

    Quito, Ecuador

  • Work published

    I have reported for and had articles published in a major city newspaper, edited and written for an award winning student magazine and created social justice zines. This experience has enthused my passion for writing and taught me ways to communicate news effectively to the public.
