Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a freelance photojournalist and writer based in Cambodia. After spending several years as a electronic/print marketing executive in the travel industry, I decided to pursue a career as a photojournalist after witnessing the adverse living conditions of some of the residents of Southeast Asia. My work as been web and print published by various entities including Big Wiezy Productions, The World Bank, Visionary World, Our Planet, The Lincoln Library, Environment Magazine, Water and Environment Magazine, World Pulse and the Arup Corporation, as well as several NGO's. Photos have been exhibited at a variety of venues including The Toronto Press Club, the 2007 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Melkweg Galerie, Amsterdam, The Netherlands in conjunction with the 2008 Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency. I will continue to photograph and report on issues that are important including; health, living conditions, press freedom, corporate malfeasance, governmental wrongdoing, corruption, the environment, human rights and poverty.

My Areas of Expertise:
Internet Marketing, Travel management (Recenue Analysis) Electronic Marketing. Photojournalism

Welcome to World Pulse. It'll be nice to see some of your thoughts, to tell of what you saw and what you felt while traveling... See you around.

John.... we are thrilled that you have joined PulseWire, and I believe that your personal insights and experiences will go far in educating us, outside of Cambodia, on the conditions and issues that face the local women today. I have been reading your blog and wondered if you would consider posting your entry titled "Is Donor Driven NGO Culture Hindering The Growth Of Democracy In Cambodia?". I think that your article is thought-provoking and invites us to question how our donations are being used. For anyone interested in doing due diligence before donating to an NGO, they might want to start with Charity Navigator,, an evaluator of charities that assesses how responsibly an NGO functions day-to-day, as well as how well positioned they are to sustain its programs over time.

You might also be interested in connecting with the following Cambodian members:
Mu Sochua, Member of Parliament, Sam Rainsy Party, Cambodia

sorphoarn, People Improvement Organization

Sophorn, Vice President, Cambodian-American Community of Oregon

ReaksmeyArun, Executive Director, Mekea Strey

I would also love it if you would post a link to your photography so that others may enjoy viewing your work. Again, welcome and I know you'll find this to be a positive experience.
