Featured journalist: Liam Moriarty
Today’s featured journalist is Liam Moriarty, an environmental journalist with dual US/EU citizenship who splits his time between Seattle and Normandy. This veteran environmental reporter got his start as a regional correspondent for an alt weekly in northern Puget Sound called the Island Independent - using an ancient Underwood with a sticky "L" key - and is still busy exploring the connections between Europe and the Pacific Northwest. His portfolio includes U.S. Seafood Industry Braces For Japan Crisis Impact for NPR, Portraits of the Fallen on KPLU, and Dances With Killer Whales: A Conversation with Ken Balcomb. If you’d like to pitch him, e-mail is best and truth reigns supreme, especially since Moriarty doesn’t hold back any punches. Here’s him talking about social media: “Like everyone else, I'm still trying to figure that out. Anyone who says they've got it sussed is full of shit.” Oh, and be sure to mention his favorite film and ours: Ron Howard’s The Paper.
Remember: if you also want to be featured here, you should a) set up your own own journalist portfolio and 2) let us know by emailing delia at muckrack dot com.
