Freelance journalist, writer, researcher, editor. I typically receive several requests a week asking for advice, contacts, tips or recommendations concerning journalism, and my country specialisms in Latin America. As a self-employed business of one, this kind of knowledge is hard-won and valuable, as is the time I take to answer questions like this. I usually charge a (half) day rate as a consulting fee on queries of this nature, but this isn't always appropriate. However, if you've enjoyed something I've written, or I've helped you with recommendations, contacts, or advice - especially if you are a staff journalist, are employed by an organisation or otherwise have a budget - please consider buying me a coffee (or several!) to say thanks. There are no fees and the gesture is warmly appreciated. Thank you!
