Diane Walsh’s page – “Who I am & what I do”

diane walsh oct 2014Welcome to my Blog! ..Well more like an overall info page about what you might like to know about me in the ‘reportage’ field.

I am usually based on the West Coast whilst the Canadian political landscape remains an active hub for me. I have history in the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ), the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) – and more recently – as a proud member of the Foreign Press Association (FPA) 2013-2018 in London and the National Press Club (NPC) 2017-2020 in DC. I am a 3x UN media accredited correspondent – both New York and UN Geneva campus. 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 print publications. 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 of 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’ve enjoyed freelancing here and there for the odd random rag and for a couple of glossy mags covering various topics on internet trends, lifestyle & social identity – also the alternative music and fashion scene and 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 and share ideas about art please check my e-portforlio in the ‘Artwork’ TAB on this site. Would welcome hearing from you!
