    Hi, I'm Ed Odeven, a veteran sports journalist with 13-plus years in Japan, reporting on and editing domestic and international sports. My reporting experience here includes 14 seasons on the pro basketball beat and extensive Olympic coverage at the 2008 Beijing Games and 2012 London Games, as well as the 2006 FIBA World Basketball Championship and 2007 IAAF World Athletics Championships.

    I'm seeking steady work as a freelancer in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (and during, if possible) and other spot-news coverage about sports for annual events, trend pieces and features that can be tailored to hometown and regional publications about foreign-born athletes in Japan.

    I have more than 25 years of experience in the newspaper business, including stints as sports editor of a community college weekly (Pima Community College's The Aztec Press), university weekday paper (Arizona State's State Press) and a city newspaper (Arizona Daily Sun). I have also freelanced for dozens of publications spanning the globe.
