A veteran journalist, Mithout Gomez spent the last 17 years working as a reporter for several local newspapers throughout the New York metropolitan area. He first joined the Caribean Life newspaper in the early 90's as Editorial Columnist and gradually transitioned to full reporting, covering the five boroughs of New York City and part of Long Island.
By the late 90's, Mr. Gomez had joined Carib News, as Caribbean correspondent, covering Cuba, Haiti and Venezuela. His dispatches from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, during the bloody coup that ousted Haitian president Jean Bertrand Artistide kept Haitian communities throughout the United States fully informed of the explosive political situation in their country.
In the aftermath of the World Trade Center bombing in New York City, Mr. Gomez was among the first reporters on the scene, reporting for Brooklyn's Courier Life publications, the parent company of Flatbush Life, Carnasie Courier and ohter publications across Brooklyn.
Mr. Gomez has received several awards and is fluent in five languages, including Spanish, English, French, Italian and Creole.
In 2004, Mr. Gomez was appointed Deputy Press Secretary for minority communications at the New York State Senate, where he worked closely with then State Senator and later New York Governor David A. Patterson.
