Maqbool Rashid
Hi, my name is Maqbool and I'm a photojournalist and videographer for Patch.com. It is indeed a great honor to be a part Patch.com and to bring our readers the local news as it  happens. 
I graduated from the American University in Nicosia, Cyprus with a degree in Business Administration in 1991. I pursued most of my career life as a photojournalist and photographer for various news organisations overseas including the British Broadcasting Servive (BBC) and I was also very lucky to cover for the CNN in Saudi Arabia for a short period of time. In the States I worked as a freelance photojournalist for the SunTimes News Group, Southtown Star, Elite Magazine, and Elle Magazine of New York. Currently I produce and edit programs for the Comcast Government Access Channel for local municipalities along with freelance video coverage for other Chicago based TV stations on per assignment basis. I must admit that I'm a geek, love electronics, and a die hard fan on Nikon and Apple Computers.
