About Me

I am a multimedia journalist with a passion for news gathering and the process of journalism. I live for breaking news. I am a coder who believes the story is just as important as the presentation.

My Philosophy

Digital journalism goes beyond posting news online; it’s the process by which we transform the traditional newsgathering process into a process of gathering, analyzing and story telling.

I'm a journalist who uses the latest technology to tell great stories.

I am always seeking new projects and partners in covering hard news.
