In addition to my work as a journalist, I have extensive experience as a digital and communications consultant. For close to two years, I worked at Portland Communications, a fully integrated communications consultancy based in London. I designed and delivered communications strategies, messaging, and press coverage for leading global philanthropic and political organizations.
Since then, I’ve worked as a freelance consultant for Global Witness, an international NGO that works to break the links between natural resource exploitation, conflict, poverty, corruption, and human rights abuses worldwide. Working with the forests team, I oversaw media relations and digital content for a campaign on illegal logging in the DRC. I also drafted press and digital content, including blogs and op-ed for the organization’s annual environmental defenders report.
