I’m Still Here

I’m not dead (and this post is not about Casey Affleck’s movie/hoax). Just been extremely busy. Good busy, for the most part. I usually hate this kind of “why I’m not blogging” blog posts, but I decided to write one to embarrass myself into getting back to the habit of blogging. I promise that I will somehow fit this into my schedule and update the blog regularly. If I don’t, feel free to abuse me in the comments :-)

Protests near Ground Zero

Today marks the ninth anniversary of 9/11. The day witnessed heated demonstrations — against and for the proposed Islamic community center — two blocks away from ground zero. I was there this afternoon with a friend of mine, and took some pictures.

Mas que un equipo

At the end of their first month at Columbia J-School, students are expected to produce a short audio slideshow to demonstrate the basic skills they acquired in audio and photo reporting. Below is my slideshow. It is about a football (Americans call it “soccer”) player who immigrated from Ecuador ten years ago.

What do you think?

Free Entertainment

Students at Columbia J-School don’t have much free time. And when they have some free time they probably don’t have much money to spend on entertainment. Can they have some fun without spending a fortune?


PS. The artists featured in the piece are: Swear and Shake, Liz Tormes, and Lara Ewen.

PPS. This is another piece from my audio reporting class. Not great, but probably better than the first one.

One Very Small Spot

This is the greatest city in the world; that’s what many proud New Yorkers would tell you about their city. I went to Bryant Park the other day and met one of them.


PS. I recorded this piece earlier today for my audio reporting class. It’s awful, I know. But I thought I would share it anyway. Sorry about the hiatus. More to come when I have more time.
