gets me out of bed in the morning is knowing the wonderful tapestry of
life that exists outside my door and the good, the bad, and the ugly
that comes with it. I, like many journalists, am driven by the need to
have a better understanding of the world in which we live through
first-hand experience, not from the comfort of an armchair, or the
halls of ivory towers. And it all comes from an unquenchable desire to
explore, discover, and record something new”.
