3 Year Anniversary - Video Journalism

For my safety or theirs?

Producer, Camerawoman, Video Editor

It is about to be 3 years since I first started at Reuters as a video journalist.

I had never even picked up a camera before they hired me and now I have filmed in three different countries. My material has been used on national TV programs and online news updates around the world. I have interviewed A-list celebrities, world leaders and the everyday Japanese salaryman.

This week I will be working in the Reuters LA office before returning to Tokyo where I will begin to pursue a new career, officially embarking on 'freelancer'. Just a few behind the scenes shot I was able to pull off my cell phone for a little proof of it all.

I have been very blessed.
