As a longtime professional journalist, I am able to cover a wide variety of assignment, from hard news to features to business profiles.
In addition to writing, I can provide top-quality digital images to accompany my articles (or the articles of others). I can transmit from my office or from remote locations. My photography can be seen on my web site at http://www.photoreporters.net.
I am free to travel worldwide. I have covered assignments throughout the U.S., South America, Japan and New Zealand (I hold residency in New Zealand and can legally work there).
