LIVES NOW IN
I have been employed for nearly five years as a Video Journalist for Reuters based in Tokyo. I have covered everything from major disasters, politics and hard news to feature stories and lighter hearted assignments in both Japan and around the world. In nearly all of of these assignments, I produce the entire story from initial research to filming all the way through to editing and delivery, and in many cases as a one-man-band. Whether it's on camera stand ups and voicing or live video setups, I'm prepared for whatever comes my way.
I'm always ready to use my years of experience to go the extra mile and use new solutions to make sure that the news that needs to be covered, gets so.
Thank you for your time!
