Hannah is passionate about shedding more light on engaging stories about marginalised communities, which has led her to reports on engaging and uplifting international stories.

 “Working with Hannah on the hit podcast Love, Janessa was a real joy. One thing I heard over and over again from audiences who listened to the series was how engaging they found Hannah as presenter. She brought a warmth and humanity that really elevated the story and allowed listeners to connect both with her and the characters. I hope we get to work with her again in the future.”
    – Arif Noorani, Director of CBC Podcasts

Hannah is currently vailable for voiceover work, TV, radio and podcast presenting, interviewing, and event hosting (with availability to travel)





It’s been a pleasure working with Hannah, and I’m sure she’s enjoyed her time with BBC Focus on Africa radio – a very strong brand in broadcasting with a great team, revered across Africa. She swiftly fitted into the team, bringing with her a range of skills and ideas. Her passion, curiosity, creativity and bravery are evident.  She is a gifted journalist with hunger to tell the Africa story to audiences on the continent and beyond.
