My encounter with journalism was like a date with a soulmate: I knew at first sight we would be companions for life. The future of news does matter to me.
I normally work in publishing, as an international sales manager, but I am in-between jobs at the moment. All other times I am a freelance journalist and blogger and forever a student of journalism.

I love blogging/blogs as a. expression of my creativity, b. way to showcase my writing skills, c. tool to engage with niche communities, d. sanity saver, e. glimpse into what others are thinking.
Engage or die.
Walk free. Use the numbers as you do words. Words are flawed, but the numerics speak loud. Walk the digital path 001100110 and know its beauty above the rambling Bard. iPad, iPhone and the humble Blackberry. Numbers and not words. Speak free, free spirit and blog away the days and nights. But pause and smell 1+1 = revolution!
