I’m a digital journalist and filmmaker based in Richmond, VA. I have written features and analysis for Mother Jones, ColorLines, the Nation Investigative Fund, Huffington Post, and other publications and websites. I have contributed video reporting to outlets such as MTV News & Docs, ABC World News, and PBS Now with David Brancaccio. I have photographed for the New York Times, Politiken (Copenhagen), Die Zeit, and others. Currently, I’m working on a documentary called Make the Ground Talk, about historic communities in Tidewater Virginia founded by the formerly enslaved that were uprooted and nearly erased in the 20th century. My first documentary, Full Disclosure, chronicles my three "embeds" with First Battalion/Second Marines in Iraq. The documentary premiered in 2010 at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and is available on TFI Reframe Collection/Amazon. http://reframecollection.org/films/film?Id=2140 From 2000-2002, I was a New York City-based correspondent for CNN, where I covered regional, national, and international news. In the mid 1990s, I served as Beijing Bureau Chief for US News & World Report. During my 20 year career, I have covered war and conflict, the White House and Capitol Hill, and life at the grassroots around the world.
