I am a ‘civic journalist,’ a global citizen standing along the road holding up a mirror to passersby, who passionately believes that mass media should be used primarily for creating social capital – benefiting and empowering a global society by including all members in the communication process, primarily through humanitarian means.
It is a life philosophy and professional practice. And my task reaches beyond a mere profession serving as a means of earning a living. It is a way of life propelled by an underlying conviction to locate the heart of human experience.
Beyond bringing out the beauty of life and culture, I am committed to seeking out the destitute and giving a voice to those ensnared in the extremes of war, poverty, disease, displacement and social injustice – creating a window through which others can see into their worlds.
This, is my purpose…
