We're MD and DC reporters for magazine, newspaper and new media, study development programs for USAID, produce projects for NGO and government clients. We know about tech, pix, eats and shows, with FCC technician and radar licenses, IT skills (812,000 images on 26 TB of networked co-located redundant storage with UPS and generator backup), working as a DC photographer and going everywhere. Years covering electronics, computer, photo and food events means we know when marketing and display work. As Zagat MD editor, we know restaurants, hospitality, tourism and surveying. We report for the NYTimes, Time, Newsweek and Wired plus review DC photography tools and dining on ever-new social media platforms with appropriate buzzwords. Much of our storytelling these days is via video and stills uploaded on the run to social media like video on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and their successors.
