I'm Global Voices’ Managing Director. I'm a media producer and writer from Trinidad and Tobago. I've worked in independent media in the Caribbean and elsewhere since 1989, covering areas such as culture, music, film and sport. I started my media career at the pioneering Trinidad and Tobago television production company Banyan, and am a founding member of Earth Television. In 2005, I started Caribbean Free Radio, the Caribbean’s first podcast. Special fan of: books, bicycling, photography, jazz, travel, swimming, architecture, justice for all humans beings.
