Years of travel in and outside the country, working in TV, interacting with all sorts of people ¿ young and old, rich and poor, local and foreign ¿ have given me a rich, colorful view of life and of the world.
I¿ve spoken with a former-president and a tribal chieftain, celebrities and cowboys, tycoons and truck drivers, artists and athletes, an archbishop and a few astute atheists. I¿ve ridden all sorts of transportation, from choppers to camels to canoes. I¿ve slept in luxury hotels, as well as a bamboo shack with cartons for bedding.
I¿ve experienced both the carefree life of a single in a big city (having married late); and now, domestic life in a homestead with children, farm animals and plants to look after.
These have all given me a wide collection of memories, skills and a broader understanding of people and of life.
Trained in investigative journalism, I'm able to delve deeper and track a story down from different angles. And, honed in mass communication, I can put the pieces together, package the whole thing, and deliver the message in as little time (and space) as possible.
I write simple, concise, easy-to-understand English that's fit for a wide range of audiences. I can do general writing for any kind of niche except adult literature, medicine and high-tech sciences.
