Biography

I wrote my first environmental article in 2008 when I reported for the National Chronicle newspaper. It was about how a particular water company produced its water is an unsanitary environment. From my report, the Ministry of Health and Environmental Protection Agency of Liberia shut down the company. It was later reopened after meeting up with standards.

Since then, I have reported several environmental and health stories—land grabbing in Grand Cape Mount County, Coastal land loss in Monrovia and, among others, the misuse and abuse of wetlands in Monrovia and suburbs. Currently as a fellow with New Narratives, a media group that trains Africans report African stories, I have reported on the correlation between the global oil crisis and Liberia’s shift to renewable energy from fossil fuels.

I have more than a decade of experience in journalism, reporting and editing a number of Liberian newspapers—Chronicle (aforementioned), Insight and The Catalyst—as well as the Liberian Economic Journal magazine. In July 2016, was quoted by the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene over my professional editorship at The Catalyst on the paper’s reportage of the Ebola crisis.

Also, I am currently a stringer with Reuters news agency and have reported more than 200 news stories basically on Ebola in Liberia and the West African region.
