So much for posting every week...

I know, I know. I've said it before, I'm a terrible lying person. I saw I'm going to write every week with new photos, and I never do. Pinch me for being bad. But this time I actually have a legitimate reason!

See... I got a full time job as a video producer at the Washington Post after interning there over the winter, so I've been a little busy settling in to my new schedule. Yay! I also went to Canada... And, I've also managed to officially graduate from GW, not that my diploma I got in the mail in February wasn't legitmate. Needless to say, I was a little busy.
See, I graduated.
But, in the meantime, I've managed to work on a couple really cool video projects at work, one of which was this project I worked on with the wonderful, talented photographer Nikki Kahn, who shot this gorgeous footage so I could edit it and weave the story together. Its a beautiful, sad story-- worth the watch.

I like me some conferences

First of all, lovely readers, happy summer. I know that it doesn't officially start until the end of June, but in my book, its summertime!

As for me, I've spent the large majority of my summer working on some really cool projects, a few of which should roll out in the next few weeks. One hint: dirty jobs.

On another note, the Washington Post video team, now dubbed Post TV, has won a number of awards for excellence, including a Murrow award and a regional Emmy-- I'm so proud!

I've also had the lovely opportunity to work as a freelance photographer again for PISA, who I traveled to Myanmar (erm, Burma) with in February. They were hosting a two week conference for diplomats from Indonesia and I got to snap a few shots during thier time in the Capital.

I know conferences aren't exactly the most visually stimulating, but I think I managed to do a pretty good job. Take a look at some shots:
