Welcome. Benvenuti. Karibu. I ask a lot of how’d you do that? questions — in a variety of languages. Lately, I carry around with me a fancy mike and audio recorder. A small, but powerful video camera too. Here’s the results, a new documentary film that I co-wrote, co-produced and co-shot (my portion with a GoPro) about former child miners in the DR Congo. It made its debut in Rome, and later at the United Nations in New York.
I have worked in newsrooms across the United States and Europe as a reporter, columnist and editor. Start-ups, you could say, are my thing. I’ve co-launched blogs and columns for The Times of London, Slate.com’s The Big Money and Bloomberg Businessweek, to name a few. In January, 2013, I started the “Very Near Future” column for Bloomberg BusinessWeek dedicated to innovation, disruption, change. Continuing with this theme of innovation, I am part of a small team of journalists that launched in January, 2015, the Wild Ducks podcast.
