Born in Kenya but raised in the UK, Mike has been based in Nairobi since 2004 as Africa Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph in London, and increasingly as a consultant and analyst of politics, development and social change on the continent. He has reported from 25 African countries, focused mostly on breaking news events, giving him extensive experience of how individuals react under the pressure of a fast-moving story. Recent work with humanitarian and development agencies including Unicef, Gavi The Vaccine Alliance and the Millennium Development Goals Centre means Mike understands how best to reach audiences with fresh, powerful messages even from areas experiencing chronic challenges.
