I am Michael Ottey, an American journalist on a journey.
I have worked for several major news outlets in the United States and abroad over a period of years. I am currently the assignment editor for National/Foreign news at the Los Angeles Times. I was also foreign correspondent and assistant world editor at The Miami Herald.
I am from the Empire State – the great state of New York – but I now live in the Golden State – California. I have lived in too many other states to list them all here. Call me crazy, but yes, I have set out on a nomadic trek around the world. I have traveled to more than 100 countries and all 50 U.S. states.
I spent more than a year traveling across South America by road and did the same over a two-year period in Europe. Then I embarked on a journey across Asia.
I am also on LinkedIn.
Here’s another one.
