Seeking Job: Creative / Journalist
Position Desired: Creative/Journalist

Cover Letter:
I have been a journalist, photographer and newspaper reporter in California for 15 years. I excel at creating and maintaining contacts, interviews, profiles and obituaries, and records acquisition.
I believe news can be entertaining AND fact-based without cowing to corporate interests or watering down the words. I don't write for less than a living wage anymore but I also don't need my byline published anymore.
I'm a published poet and instructor with California Poets in the Schools. I also cook to make money and am a fledgling artist. My interests include climbing and mountaineering, philosophy, primitive cultures, art and exploration, both outside and inward.
