Fixer in Nepal for visiting professionals

Developing Story: Qatar World Cup 2022 

I have been working on stories about the Qatar World Cup 2022 since 2015.

My first assignment was with ESPN for the program E:60. Since then I have researched and covered this subject intensively for over a dozen clients. I even visited Qatar to investigate and film a documentary for French TV (TF1) in 2019.

Getting access to places, people and information in Nepal can be a frustrating and time consuming affair for any visiting journalist, photographer, filmmaker or researcher.

Most local organizations or government offices never reply e-mails or telephone calls. With illiteracy at a staggering 54% and English speakers few and far between outside urban areas, tracking down a source or contacting a remote community can quickly become a wild-goose chase or just impossible.

I solve these kinds of problems on a regular basis for foreign media professionals, researchers and even NGO’s or commercial clients that need a reliable contact or assistant in Nepal.
