Jeff is a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (and dropout...long story), philosophy undergraduate (which he admits has been surprisingly useful), international multimedia journalism MA (China Cohort), and professional wanderer (over 12 years of living in countries in Africa, Asia, and S. America) that is grateful to somehow have carved out a living creating photos and make videos all over the world (…and by somehow he means a life of never-ending learning, cursing, laughing, crying, failing, and finally becoming good enough to be paid).
Although his background is in multimedia journalism and documentary photography (which wasn’t exactly paying the bills), his specialty over the last few years has been mostly documentary brand storytelling for Trek Bikes. However, never one to be idle, he recently decided to switch it up and is currently the Director of Multimedia for Americares, a large NGO in the international disaster relief and health sector. He also helps teach photography workshops for National Geographic's Student Expeditions in the summer when his schedule allows.
