Cindy Sui

Hi, I've been working for many years as a journalist, first in California, then Hong Kong, mainland China and now Taiwan. I started out working for newspapers and then switched to wire agency reporting when I worked for Agence France Presse (AFP) as a Beijing-based foreign correspondent from 1999 to 2006. In late 2006, I moved to Taiwan and after freelancing for international, regional and local publications, in 2008 I also began doing broadcast media (both radio and TV) for the BBC, as well as writing text stories for its website as its Taiwan correspondent. I'm available to do all of the above except for fixing and translating. But I can refer you to people I know who are competent fixers and translators. My main job is working for the BBC so when breaking news happens, I need to give my regular employer first priority, but when time allows, I'm happy to help other media.
