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

Posted: February 21, 2019 in Europe/NorthAmerica, Washington DC, London UK, Vancouver, Canada

Welcome 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 Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) and (CAJ), and, more recently (FPA) the Foreign Press Association 2013-2018 and (NPC) the National Press Club (NPC) 2017-2022 in Washington.

I am a 2x UN media accredited correspondent, both New York (2010) and UN Geneva campus (2011). I was was an invited independent-media representation participant in a UN Geneva symposium in 2014.

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/fortĂ© 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, community politics, cultural (social) anthropology (see my blog posts), lifestyle choices & 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!
