Hi there

I’m Jamillah.

I work in media as a writer, broadcaster, voice-over artist,  illustrator and cartoonist. That sounds like a lot, but twenty years in media, you pick up many skills.

If you are looking for these things, let me elaborate.


A journalist and PR writer. I also ghostwrite columns and content for other websites. I’ve written for the BBC, Chinwag, Index Ventures, Trinity Mirror newspapers, Sophos and a whole bunch of people who needed a little help getting words to behave.  If you need some words, pop an intro in the contact form below and we can explore what you need and what I can do for you.

Cartooning and Illustration

I create editorial images that suit the more abstract themes of the news and current affairs. When photographs don’t quite fit, this is where I can help with alternatives. I use pen and ink as well as digitally manipulating artwork. Overall I make cartoon panels and illustrate for websites as well as creating imaginative images for children.


For nine years I produced and hosted BBC Outriders, a radio show about tech culture. I also read news bulletins, voiced radio packages and co-hosted on Click Radio on BBC World Service from time to time. I still pop up occasionally as my specialism in AI is a handy thing to have. I also host events and moderate panels. This includes The Next Web, Le Web, Dublin Web Summit and SXSW and lots more.

Voice Over

I do clear, authoritative voice-over for corporate audio and video. You can hear my natural style and tone here. If you are in need of something similar, by all means let me know.



As you can imagine, rates are dependent on requirements and the scope of work. Sometimes it’s easier to bring several things together and for some clients just one of the skills are needed. If you would like to know more or you need a combination, drop me a line and let’s talk.
