I'm very excited to announce that I will be participating in the first Young Media Professionals Exchange Program
organized by the International Center for Journalists and Moscow Union of Journalists as part of a 2-year initiative between Russia and the US. The program is funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
. Twelve journalists from Russia will come to the US to work for a variety of news organizations here, and I will be one of 12 from the US who will live in Moscow from Nov. 26 to Dec. 21 working for a variety of Russian news organizations. I'll be working for the ITAR-TASS Photo Agency
, a Russian photo news service dating to 1926 when it was known as Photochronica TASS.
As such, I won't be available for assignment work in the US until the end of December, but get in touch if you have any needs in Russia. I'll primarily be in Moscow. You can leave a voicemail or SMS at (917) 512-3473 or contact me by email.
