I have worked as a journalist across various media platforms, traditional print and online, for more than a decade.

I have also photographed extensively, with some of my images being exhibited in Poland in 2012.
I was West Africa Correspondent based in Accra, Ghana, for TELL Magazine from 2008 – 2010 where I covered the Ghanaian and Togolese presidential elections as well as other topics that included Ghana’s oil exploration, culture and business.
Some of my writings have been published in media like DW.com, CNN, USAToday, Goal.com, The African Courier, Accra ShowBiz, SPIN, BBC Focus on Africa, OVATION, Angolense, Chimurenga Chronic, among many others.
I was a bi-monthly sports business contributor for the Nigerian general interest daily newspaper, The Guardian, as well as a columnist for Goal.com on African football business and politics.
I have a keen interest in digital media and sport as well as expertise in the Olympic and Paralympic Movements having obtained a Master of Sport Administration degree at the Russian International Olympic University in 2017.
I have been to three FIFA World Cups – South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018 – as well as the FIFA U20 Egypt 2009 and the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017. I reported the 2008 and 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana and South Africa.
