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.

Yesterday evening (June 14), the WITNESS/Global Voices Human Rights Video Hub pilot took the award for best New Media project at the One World Media Awards in London. As former Video Hub editor Sameer Padania writes in an e-mail this morning: "I know people say this all the time, but the award really does belong to the brave, committed, talented people on the ground - bloggers, human rights advocates, journalists, lawyers, filmmakers, citizens - who fought to bring these stories to light, and without whom we genuinely would have had nothing to say or show."
