Posted for iReport producer Nicole Saidi, who's off on a Comic-Con adventure
One of our most prolific citizen journalists, ChrisMorrow , has come full circle on a full year of iReporting. The San Diego, California, videographer and photographer has given us the inside scoop on the Comic-Con madness for two years now. The event transforms the entire city into a Hollywood, Hollyweird and science fiction Mecca for a few days.
This year, I got a chance to not only go to the popular arts convention but meet ChrisMorrow as the blessed event was winding down. I learned a lot about her as we discussed her interest in journalism, as well as her experiences as an early adopter of webcam technology. She and husband Marty had a live webcam of their experiences at home when this practice was new. Overall, she's very focused on her craft and has a keen eye on her local beat. I also learned that she is a talented photographer, artist, designer and collage maker. I'll go home with some new ideas, that's for sure.
ChrisMorrow showed me some of her favorite haunts downtown and in the picturesque neighborhood of Little Italy. We went to the top of the Hyatt and relaxed in the cabanas of the W Hotel before heading up to her rooftop patio and gazing at the sunset over the ocean. I can't think of many better places to be a journalist than San Diego, with so much going on and a beautiful setting to boot.
Check out ChrisMorrow's stories on iReport.com and hopefully you'll find some inspiration there. What's your favorite iReport you've seen from ChrisMorrow?
I have watched Chris for quite some time now and I think she is a real go-getter. I know that Chris is in need of a better camera and I sure think she deserves it. I have enjoyed Ms. Morrow’s tenacity and I think we will continue to see her grow.
It sure would be nice if she became part of the CNN’s new media family or at least gets a nicer camera for all her hard work that we all have benefited from. Keep up the great work Chris! We will see you on the flipside!
Happy to be here :)
