Just under two weeks ago I returned to the good ol USA to pursue life as a freelancer. For those of you who don't know, I was in the Middle East working for an English language newspaper for the past three years. I have to say, after a 24 hour flight and a yearning to be Stateside, arriving at Chicago O'Hare International was a sweet homecoming.
It felt even better when my phone rang less than five minutes after exiting customs. Education Week Nicole Fruge called and wanted to know if I was back in the States and ready to work! Of course I jumped at the offer and two days later was on assignment bobbing around the Chesapeake Bay. The photos ran this week and here a few additional outtakes and the clip from Education Week.
*A special shout out to my homie Matt Eich for recommending me to Education Week. Also, a big thank you to Nicole Fruge and Director of Photography Charlie Borst for hiring me on for my first assignment as a freelancer. It is so very refreshing to be home in Virginia Beach.
