diane walsh oct 2014Welcome to my Blog! … Well more like my overall info page about anything and everything you could possibly hope to know in the ‘reportage’ field. I am usually based on the West Coast whilst Canadian political scenes remain active hubs for me, with history in the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) and the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) and more recently as a proud member of The Foreign Press Association (FPA) 2013-2018 London. I am a 3x UN media accredited correspondent, New York and UN Geneva campuses. 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. 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 enjoy freelancing here and there for a couple of glossy mags covering various topics on internet trends, 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 and share ideas about art please check my e-portforlio in the “Artworks” section of this site. Would welcome hearing from you! My twitter feed is @dwalshmedia.
