One of the most defining moments of my life is when I traveled to Indonesia for 6 weeks in 2005 after the devastating tsunami that killed over 200,000 people. I wanted to tell the stories of remote villages that did not receive mainstream aid. My shooting experience was almost non-existent but the experience of finding stories in that way made me realize I didn't want to do anything else with my life. I won a Webby Award and raised enough money for two girls to receive life saving surgery. Since this experience I've worked professionally as a Producer, Shooter and Editor for Cantaloupe.TV and recently started my freelance career in 2012. I'm constant traveler and have been to over 20 countries and 5 continents documenting everything from Ultra Running in the Arctic to the Haitian earthquake in 2010. My strength lies in shooting in difficult situations and finding stories as they unfold. What drives me is when seemingly disparate ideas come together to create meaning that only happens when you're in the right place at the right time. I look forward to speaking with you about StoryHunter and how I may contribute to your network of storytellers. Thanks, Zachary
