I produce short documentaries and news videos for ReasonTV, based out of Washington DC.

Originally a still photographer, my work has appeared in The New York Times, Time Magazine, GEO Magazine, The Guardian, and many other publications around planet Earth. Photo assignments have taken me to live on a Rajasthani opium farm, witness the fall of the world’s last Hindu monarch, trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp, and track illegal immigrants on the US-Mexican border.

My coverage of the Nepalese Civil War earned first prize at the Prix de la Photographie Paris. In 2007 and 2008, my work was featured twice at the Angkor Photo Festival in Cambodia. I’ve won six awards from the Associated Press for my work at daily newspapers.
