I’m an Emmy winning producer and cinematographer from Mexico City. I am currently based in New York where I currently produce and shoot for VICE News Tonight on HBO.
Before that I was a grantee of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at the Columbia Journalism School where I taught as an Adjunct Assistant Professor for photography and video classes. I got my Master's degree from Columbia Journalism School in 2013 and my B.A. from The New School in 2010.
I am passionate interested in covering immigration, identity and human rights. My work has taken me across the US and Mexico and , Guatemala, Cambodia, Colombia, Cuba, and Peru. I’ve worked for HBO, Vice News, TIME, NatGeo, Blue Chalk Media, Univision, Telemundo and more.
I am available for freelance work in and out of town. I can be reached at email@example.com, 646-420-3033, or via Twitter and Instagram at @jikaglez.
