I'm now the BBC's freelance reporter in Jamaica but I've also worked for National Geographic, The Discovery Channel, CBC, Channel 4, The New York Times The Guardian and The Telegraph and many other media organisations on stories here. One of the things that I've enjoyed so much in Jamaica is the ability the people have to reinvent, from music and art through to the very nuts and bolts of their lives. People seemingly always find a way to survive and thrive. It's also a country that has so much unrealised potential. One area that interested me was the fact that it is one of the few countries that produces the fine and flavorful cacao that's essential in making artisan chocolate. With that in mind I've trained and started my own chocolate business called One/One Cacao. Taking wonderful cacao from the different parishes and turning it into rich 70% dark chocolate. Jamaica has a saying, 'One One Cocoa Full Basket' which means little by little things get done. It's my dream for my adopted country.
