Having worked in traditional media outlets for the majority of her career and finding something lacking, this project is a departure from a media climate where politics reign supreme. Using her experience in traditional media as a launching point, Nadine Mazloum aka the NewsroomNomad©, attempts to explore topics that are often overlooked or trivialized but which are essential to our experience of humanity. Stories don’t tell themselves and it is only by peeling back the many layers of certain issues and events that we can get to a more profound understanding of how and why they matter. Much like the four corners of the globe, every story takes its departure from the center of the compass. By pursuing each needle of the compass, navigating news, nature and, narrative, the storyteller can hope to get to the heart of the matter and find its true north.
