I have been supporting humanitarian missions for over two decades. From management and logistics to communication and documentation, my work has taken me to some of the worlds most undeveloped and conflicted regions.
Compassion and humility are my primary tools..
Relationship building is the key to successful outcomes and successful relationship are built on honesty and trust. These are the core principles that guide my practice. I believe wealth is not material, but can be measured in long lasting relationships.
My holistic approach to humanitarian projects is based on 20 years of experience working a variety of roles which have involved solving both personal and practical problems that have been varied and challenging. My experience ranges from organising and supporting community development and social enterprise projects to international aid delivery and humanitarian emergency response. I am a competent educator and public speaker with a proven track record in event production and management. Developing workshops and training seminars for both professionals, amateurs and students with specialist needs I have been fortunate to touch many hearts with my passion and help inspire confidence whilst providing the tools required for effective communication.
I use photography in my practice, however I dislike working with most news agencies as ‘Image Brokers’ are profit driven and operate with diminished responsibility creating false myths and fake news. I still maintain a good working relationship with two wire agencies based strategically in Europe and Asia which I am happy to engage with when required.

My home base is the beautiful island of Singapore, although through my many years of travelling I have spent time in a number of communities which I would happily call home. I travel frequently both for work and pleasure, in doing so I have amassed an extensive global network of associates including fixers, translators and logistics partners.
I have my own insurance and am able to travel internationally without any legal restrictions. I am a member of the NUJ and IFJ and hold both Press cards, as well as a BETC level IV HET certification.
