On Journalism

I view the world as a deep well of interesting stories, and I’m passionate about empowering other journalists to join me in telling those stories.

I regularly write about journalism and for journalists looking to develop their skills. I also regularly speak to students and at industry events, and conduct training sessions for newsrooms and media organizations.
