ROMEO MORALES is a former newsman from the Philippines, initially covering the police and eventually the foreign beat. His stint as a journalist had brought him all over the Philippines and more than a dozen countries around the world. As a recipient of the United States International Visitor’s Program, he was one of those select groups of professionals chosen to attend a course on the Enigmas of American Political Culture at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University. He also was selected, along with a dozen of journalists worldwide to a forum on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict held in New Delhi, India on invitation of the United Nations. In Vietnam, he was honored together with officers of the National Press Club to lay a wreath at the tomb of Ho Chi Minh.
A certified legal assistant, he has over ten years experience on immigration. He has a diploma on non-fiction and fiction writing from Long Ridge Writers Group in Connecticut. Earlier, at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Morales finished his BSC degree, major in Advertising.
After an eight-month stint with the North Slope Borough Police Department and almost seven years with the Alaska Court System in Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska, Romeo had finally retired. Today he is on to his new adventure in life.
