Freelance Journalist – Japan, 1989 - 1992. Below are a sampling of articles I wrote as a freelance journalist in Japan. The majority of the publications are Japan-based, which I targeted because their liked editorial approach. The same was true of Sawasdee, Thai Air’s inflight magazine, which at the time was produced by some Brits out of Hong Kong. The Toronto Star is Canada’s largest newspaper and based in my home town; the Brantford Expositor was delivered daily to my late grandmother and based in the home town of Wayne Gretzky.
