Marissa Tejada

Marissa is an author and award-winning freelance journalist based in Greece. She was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up on Long Island (NY) and has followed her media career across the world. She has lived in Upstate New York, London, Los Angeles, Washington State, Orlando and San Francisco.

Her interest in photography first piqued in college where she mastered her hand-me-down Minolta XD5 45 mm film camera. She happily spent hours in the dark room to develop her projects which had a photo journalistic focus. Since then she’s worked on both sides of the camera, from behind the scenes at an international news bureau to covering local and national news as a television reporter and anchor. Currently, as a freelance journalist, travel writer and blogger she shoots for many of her stories.

Marissa loves travelling in Europe and discovering its history and many cultures. In Greece, she has a soft-spot for the whitewashed buildings and clear blue seas of the Cycladic Islands where every corner has the potential for a great shot. Her blog, my Greece, my travels, is her outlet to share her travel experiences and photography from around the country.
