Izidor Ruckel, 32, is still small, with haunted brown eyes and close-cropped hair. As a child, his fierce determination to get out of a Romanian orphanage propelled him into the arms of an American family. As a newly adopted adolescent, he fought for his orphanage friends to come to America, too. As an adult, he has become an activist for the tens of thousands of children who still languish in Romanian institutions. Determined that they should not have to relive the nightmares he endured, he wants to help them in the same way he was once helped: by taking their story public. —from "A lost boy finds his calling," by Tara Bahrampour, published January 30, 2014 in The Washington Post wapo.st/Lew93d

I'm a photographer, videographer, and public radio storyteller. I work at the Washington Post as a video journalist. My visual work has appeared on the websites of The Washington Post (wapo.st/Mw24xK), NPR (n.pr/XdBTvg), MediaStorm (bit.ly/LDa26t), the AARP Bulletin Today (ow.ly/t2bqH), and others.

I've instructed at multimedia workshops given by MediaStorm, the National Press Photographer's Association, Maine Media Workshops, and Syracuse University's school of photojournalism.

I received a Master’s in Multimedia Storytelling from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, where I studied under multimedia guru Bruce Strong and taught classes with professor and audio god Doug Quin.

I live in Washington, DC with my wife and daughter. I like hitchhiking, eating pickled foods, talking to plants, and watching Star Trek the Next Generation. I try to embarrass myself at least once a day.

I'm always happy to discuss possible projects—visit BradHornMultimedia.com for contact information. And of course...
