Hello 73 Gang. Since this is my first exchange, I thought I should do a brief introduction.
I was born.....just kidding. I'm an American living in Pretoria, South Africa and I've worked as a writer, editor and photographer within the world of newspapers and magazines for the last 10+ years. I previously lived in Tennessee, North Carolina, Dominican Republic, Texas, Colorado, D.C. and Botswana. I've been in southern Africa for almost three years now (my wife is posted here with the U.S. foreign service) and have written about everything from Mozambique's hot sauce (peri-peri) to last year's xenophobic violence in South Africa. It has been tough to find fellow creative souls out here so I'm really looking forward to this project.
