Writing on Asia

Remember the time before the Internet?

The only evidence of a lot of my journalism from the nineties are yellow clippings sitting in folios on a shelf. I’ve found some of my articles from that time on the web, others I’ve lost due to misplaced and damaged lap tops or during frequent moves between countries.

Some of my more recent work from 2008 in Cambodia includes:
