Welcome to my Blog! … Well more like my overall info page about anything and everything you could possibly want to know about me today on-line. I’m based on the West Coast whilst the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) and the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) remain active hubs for me, but, I am also a committed proud member of The Foreign Press Association (FPA), London office.
Cross-border issues are key for me. I classify myself as an investigative journalist. I write for new media outlets as well as long-established left-leaning print publications that [by some miracle] haven’t gone under.
I blend writing, videography and photo-journalism into creative-form.
What do I mean by investigative? Don’t worry I get that question a lot. Critical thinking about the world in which we live, advanced source-seeking and background-checking, probing deeply into research projects of my choosing (and/or those of my fave editors), and, the pursuit eclectic interviews with people I find the most interesting.
I’m not afraid of politically sensitive topics and on a good day being in possession of a signature style/forté for spontaneous and revealing Q&As [I've been told anyway].
I’m easy to talk to and easy to reach. I enjoy covering international news items and I guess you could say I have a social justice bent. Motivated to cover issues that have some social relevance and perhaps, in some small way, I try to help to improve people’s quality of life.
I enjoy freelancing here and there for a couple of glossy mags covering various topics on lifestyle & social identity, alternative music & fashion scene, and of course eco-travel (something I like to dabble in on a more personal level).
That’s about it other than if you’d like to gab about, share ideas on art please check my e-portforlio in the “Artworks” section of this site.
