Going Native

Freelance Journalist and Editor, Nathan A. Thompson covers Southeast Asia for CNN, Al Jazeera, The Guardian and many more. Writing features, in-depth stories and travel articles, he’s never far from a nerve-jangling story.

Nathan has never studied Journalism. Rather, he’s a self-confessed, expert mistake-maker with the experience to make sure you sail over common pitfalls. Thanks Nathan. Check out his website here:
