Conrad Fox

Collaborative border-free journalism for a digital world. Also robots and soccer.



Projects

I have led several multi-year international reporting projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. I recruited teams of talented young reporters from Mexico, Central America, Haiti, Canada and the US to produce in-depth collaborative reporting on little-known social issues. I helped the reporters achieve internationally-accepted standards of reporting, but also to understand the value and power of their own local knowledge.

Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.
