I’m a multimedia journalist, originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and currently based in New York City. I’ve spent the last few years reporting and producing in Brazil, Congo, Haiti, Italy, Philadelphia and NYC. I’ve covered politics, war, culture and other topics. I’m especially drawn to sports stories that go beyond the final score. My work has been featured on various platforms, including The New York Times, the CBS Sports Network, Newsweek and SLAM Magazine.
In May 2016, I put together a video series on mental health in the black community for Mental Health Awareness Month. While in the Congo in 2015, I directed, shot and edited a short documentary called “TELEMA” which was an official selection for the Congo In Harlem Film Festival. In Brazil in 2014, I covered violent World Cup protests, got a glimpse of the intense Argentina-Brazil soccer rivalry, and watched a match from Rio de Janeiro’s largest favela.
