Photography and videography have always been part of my storytelling, though never the primary mode. I shot second or third camera on several figure-skating features as an Associate Producer at NBC Olympics, as well as an entire eight-episode Olympic features series for Huffington Post. At one point I started my own documentary on the lives of vegan pro athletes, but that has taken a backseat to other work in recent years. The images here are a combination of commissioned and personal projects.
While based in New York City since 2008, I spend a few months of each year living in other places, often reporting local stories or simply working remotely from another location. These trips are rarely travel for the sake of travel; rather, they're travel for the sake of inspiration and introductions. They provide a much-needed dose of perspective and introduce me to people on a deeper level than I could know by passing through quickly (though sometimes, of course, a quick visit is all that time allows). Thus far I've visited 49 countries across six continents, yet I feel I've barely started to truly understand the people and places beyond New York.
