Time flies! Before we’re too far into 2014, I wanted to take the time to look back on last year. Here is a quick rundown of a few personal headlines from the past 12 months.
In April, I traveled to Boston for two weeks to coordinate logistics for ABC News’ coverage of the Marathon Bombings. As we all know, the events of that entire week were extremely dramatic and heart wrenching. I believe our coverage was thorough and well executed. I hope we managed to help shed light on something that affected so many. I had little time to take photos, but here are a few snapshots from that time:
In May, I traveled to Europe with my wife Rachel for a long awaited vacation. It was great to be able to sped more than a week with my fantastic grandfather Werner in his home of Switzerland. We took a road trip through the country and ended up visiting my uncles in the town of Sent. It was a wonderful time. You can find a selection of photos from the trip on my Flickr account.
After returning and working on some local DC projects, I headed to Sanford, FL in June to cover the Zimmerman trial. The days were busy with feed coordination, producing live shots and media organization. Of course, the trial stirred up discussions regarding race relations like few things have in recent years, and I was grateful to have been able to be there first hand to contribute to our coverage. Here are some photos from that event as well:
In November, I traveled to the Philippines to cover the tragic tsunami that hit there. Our team did excellent work covering the devastation and recovery efforts. As always, it was an honor to be part of the process to inform our audience back in the states.
On to 2014 and whatever new projects and adventures come along…
