Jo's Journalism

I started my broadcasting career at the BBC in the UK. In radio, I worked for BBC 5-Live and BBC stations in the West Midlands, while in television I reported for Midlands Today and BBC News 24. After moving to West Africa, I made features and documentaries for BBC Radio 4 and the World Service. From Switzerland, I filed for Monocle 24, and I have worked for The Economist Radio from Singapore.

As a freelance, I produce articles and photo-journals for magazines. I have also edited and ghost-written books for multi-national corporations, a Nobel-prize winning scientist and the Palace of the Sultan of Brunei. 


I'm the editor and founder of SWAG, an online literary magazine for writers in Singapore. Click on the book covers below to hear my interviews with these amazing authors.

For BBC News Magazine: Are children given too many toys?

For BBC Online: Dutch Airline’s Inaugural Flight to Douala Left High and Dry

For BBC Radio:

For BBC World Service: The movie Critical Assignment stars an all-African hero created for a beer advertisement.

For BBC Woman’s Hour: Meet the Cameroonian "Queen of the Mountain", a elite athlete and farmer.


For World Scientific Publishing, I worked as editor on the English-language translation of two popular science books by Professor Gerard t’Hooft, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics: Playing with Planets and Time in Powers of Ten.
