Bonnie is our Culture Editor, who covers celebrity culture and Internet gems. Weirdly enough, in her pre-teen years Bonnie wasn't that much into music. It all changed when an old cassette mixtape that belonged to her sister, with Pattie Smith and Velvet Underground classics hidden inside. Fresh out of grad school, Bonnie began writing for music magazines such as State of Melody, Grand Tune, and Air. She received her bachelor’s degree in news editorial journalism from Oklahoma State University. Now Bonnie resides in the US Bay Area, covering celebrity culture and the world of Internet gems.

Christopher is a London-based Political Editor for World News Tribune. He knows what your local politician is up to. A meticulous perfectionist, Christopher beat dyslexia at the age of 15 and declared that now he was now obligated to have a career in writing. During his sophomore year, he was already contributing front-page stories to The Evening Lantern. Christopher has always chased the truth in its rawest form — that’s why covering politics has been such a desirable challenge. After studying Journalism and Politics in his native Essex County, UK, Christopher moved to London and began to build his career with the most effective jump-start: by working at a coffee shop in The City. It truly paid off. Thanks to studying the local media scene through his customers, Christopher moved to freelance journalism, effectively gaining recognition for his International Affairs coverage. He still lives in London and is still able to make a wickedly good cup of coffee. Email:preston@worldnewstribune.com

Thelma is our Sports Reporter, a volleyball lover and a former cheerleader who still remembers a couple of impressive stunts. Thelma had a very “girly” upbringing which didn’t stop her from being fiercely into sports. After becoming a regional Cheer&Dance champion and spending four years as a trainer, she decided to climb another hill and successfully completed the a Publishing Course. While polishing her skills by taking several sports broadcasting gigs, Thelma concluded that she liked writing more than talking: the sheer power and potential of a written word fascinated her. She started with co-running a Premier Volleyball League blog and playing a part in drawing attention to the Arizona volleyball program for kids and teens. Today there is no form of the competitive sport she wouldn’t cover. Thelma returned to Arizona and has no desire to ever leave. We respect that. Email:meeks@worldnewstribune.com

Nathan is a Technology Reporter, a front-end developer — and he can also build a robot. When asked if he believes in the inevitable uprising of Artificial Intelligence, Nathan usually takes a pause to stare into the distance with a dreamy smile. It is a little unsettling, but we are used to it, especially since Nathan is a great guy that seems to predict the next Tesla idea months before Elon Musk. At least that’s what it usually feels like. In real life, Nathan is an independent front-end developer who has graciously accepted our request to join our team. He says he basically began his career at the tender age of 13 by posting opinions on every gaming software within MySpace. Since then Nathan earned a Bachelor's degree in Robotics from University of Toledo and written for numerous digital outlets, including Cube, Got Idea, RoboHub, and Daring Data. moody@worldnewstribune.com

Our contributing editor, John covers worldwide crime stats and criminal court cases. One of John’s fondest childhood memories is sneaking out at night to read evening newspapers left in the living room: they were banned as the “adults only” type of media. That forbidden fruit made him pursue journalism and graduate from the University of Auckland with a Media and Communication Studies degree. John moved to Virginia in 2010, arriving right in the middle of Springfest riots; covering them was his first truly intense job as a reporter, and he has been chasing that adrenaline high ever since. But his main goal is to be as fast and correct as possible when it comes to reporting crimes. John believes that the Internet must be a source of objective information that saves lives. He currently lives in Vancouver with his family and enjoys gardening: you can literally find him working on his articles among the parsley patches. Email:red@worldnewstribune.com

Virginia, our Seoul-based Art and Culture editor, brings you the news of the global art sphere. Virginia has worked at or written for nearly all of the American art magazines — at least that is our strong impression. Either way, she is one of those people who can absolutely bewitch you with her knowledge, even on topics that bore you. After graduating from Bangor University with MA in Medieval studies, Virginia got her first gig as an independent art critic, contributing to Stellar, The San Francisco Muse, and Daily Digest. When Virginia isn’t working or attending the world’s best art events, she collects kitschy Soviet bloc figurines and paintings. Since 2019 she has been living in Seoul.
