About Olga

I'm a freelance journalist, filmmaker and editor. I travel a lot and love to pursue complex investigative and character-driven stories from remote places. In the past five years I've produced, filmed and edited documentaries, TV programs and digital pieces in Latin America, the United States, West Africa, and Russia. I'm a Fulbright alumna and a graduate of Mizzou Journalism School. I started my journalistic career as a reporter and producer for English-language newspapers in Russia covering anti-government protests, elections and other pressing issues. I mostly do video now, but still enjoy researching and writing profound feature stories occasionally.

    Olga responds quickly and delivered everything as promised. I have yet to review the script and footage in their entirety, but up to this point in the project she has been a true pro. I'll be back to update!

    Olga produced, filmed, and edited a great film for us. Communication was good throughout the project and she was quick to make any suggested changes. We'll definitely work with her again.

  • A changemaking chocolatier

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist
    • Drone Operator
    • Field Producer

    Axel Emmanuel Gbaou, one of the very few local chocolatiers who is trying to change the way chocolate is made, marketed and sold in Ivory Coast. The country produces about 40% of the world's raw cocoa beans, but hardly makes any of its own chocolate. Besides, child labor is common in some areas of the country, and many industry giants like Mars and Hersheys do little to nothing to make sure their chocolate is fair trade. Gbaou has trained more than 500 women in a cooperative in rural Ivory Coast that supplies his company with cocoa beans and makes sure his bars are ethically made.

    • Documentary DP

    The world produces about 2.5 million tons of electronic waste per year. Although African countries are responsible for the least amount of it, they are the ones where e-waste from all over the world is exported to and dumped. To recycle some of it and to raise awareness about the waste problem, Ivorian painter Mounou Desire koffi makes bold art using old cell phones.
