Reports and Case Studies

Sometimes an article, or a blog post, is not enough. You need to go more in-depth, or provide a deeper level of analysis for your audience. In additional to my journalistic experience, I’ve worked with non-profits and academic institutions to produce factually accurate, investigative reports.

Testimonials from Editors & Clients

Nithin has worked with us as a freelance writer for the better part of two years. It is a genuine pleasure to engage with someone who understands international campaigning, technology and storytelling. His familiarity with a range of people and political situations helps draw out new insights about social change and activism. As an added bonus, he’s genuinely kind, open to feedback, witty and reliable.
Ted Fickes

Editor, MobilisationLab.com

I had the pleasure of editing Nithin’s work for over two years. Nithin is a self-starter with the ability to produce copy on a deadline with little to no oversight, and the pieces he submitted to TriplePundit.com were well written and well researched. His growing expertise in supply chain and human rights issues in Asia was an asset to our coverage, as it would be to any media outlet in the sustainability and social justice space. I would highly recommend Nithin for any writing and editorial opportunities in this field.
Mary Mazzoni

Editor, Triple Pundit


My goal is to help make a difference. Thus, I include several factors such as location, size of organization, budget, and issue area when determining project cost. My rate is highest for for-profit enterprises and international NGOs, less for local NGOs, and lowest for community organizations. I am also willing to work pro-bono on small projects for specific causes. I am especially open to doing this for indigenous communities or indigenous rights organizations.
