Tracey was a true pro to work with. He professionally planned and executed a shoot we needed on a tight timeline in Orlando, FL with a guest for a package we're editing in New York. The footage was excellent quality and we got everything we needed per our phone conversations. Was always available and reachable. Will definitely work with again.

Economic hardship forces many Cubans to set out for the United States. They often leave their families behind. For this story, I interviewed young people who had just reached the U.S. and the family members they left behind in Cuba.

News Shooter / Video Journalist

For this story, I interviewed residents of St. George, Georgia. Authorities had ordered residents to evacuate as a wildfire continued to spread in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge near the Florida-Georgia border. Many townspeople refused to leave, saying they wanted to stay behind to try to save homes and businesses. The Weather Channel URL is no longer active, so I use a YouTube link.

Plundering America: The Cuban...

Reporter / Writer

I assisted the South Florida Sun Sentinel with an investigation into Cuban organized crime. My role was to track down fugitives in Cuba. Among those I found: Angel Ricardo Mendoza, wanted on charges of stealing $180,000 in nickels from the Federal Reserve. Mendoza told me he couldn’t resist the temptation to steal 900 bags of nickels. He had deep regrets. "I committed a crime I shouldn't have."

Reporter / Writer

It was based on interviews with people who had fought with the Cuban leader during the revolution or worked or had close contact with him afterward. I was looking for anecdotes about Castro, not political opinions, as a way of revealing something about the character of the Cuban president.

Fidel Castro, polarizing Cuban revolutionary, dies...

I wrote this piece about Fidel Castro for Newsweek. It is based on interviews with supporters and foes of the Cuban leader, who rose to power in 1959.
