Our Team

Expat Media Pro is a collaboration of media professionals who agree to the standards which make us a bit different from others. We are people of faith, networked in one common purpose who believe that dignity is paramount in anything we produce. Each of our Expat Media Pros is an independent contractor and has their own individual availabilities, skills, geographical areas of work and prices. Our media professionals mostly fall into three categories:

  1. “Expat Media Pros” who are sent out under our organization
  2. “Associates” who we network with but don’t have a stake in our company
  3. “Candidates” who are seeking placement in short or long-term capacity
