I’m a journalist/reporter, photojournalist, photographer and videographer who has contributed to publications that include Valley News, Riverside County News Source, The Valley Chronicle, Press Enterprise and newsgroups for Hemet and San Jacinto, CA.
I feed news footage to mainstream tv stations as a freelancer. I’ve had my footage aired under my own watermark strangisjohn.com, and now through the stringer organization, OnScene.tv. I cover Southern California news, mainly from the Inland Empire.
On my website and social media pages you will find cooking shows I’ve hosted as well as recipes of my own creation. I love to cook and love food and have hosted cooking shows as well as written recipes which can be found on my website and social media pages.
I have a degree in network engineering and have worked in information technology for ten years. Most of my other skills are self taught; including journalism, photography, culinary arts and videography.
I’ve always been hungry for knowledge and most of my passions are self taught. Information technology was a line of work I did well, but didn’t find it to be my real love.
I cultivate my passions and work on what I cherish and enjoy. I also have a unique life story. I turned past negativity in my life into positivity, something that allowed me help others and become a better man for my community.
I have a great support for our first responders and I love to show the people the great work our law enforcement, fire and emergency personnel do on a daily basis.
I’m a law enforcement friendly journalist because I find that In today’s world filled with public distrust in police, showing that there’s more good out there than than bad, may perhaps increase the public’s trust in our Officers and Deputies.
