Originally a Brooklynite, I’m now living in Washington D.C. after 12 years living in Bangkok as a TV correspondent, copy writer, and as a university lecturer in media studies/journalism. During the last seven years, I have also been working on a documentary film, “Cirque du Cambodia,” which will finally be released in 2020.  (I’m holding up one of the two stars of the film in the photo).

I am currently teaching at American University, and I am available for freelance writing, editing, photography, videography or other consulting. My email is joelgershon at gmail, and I'm happy to provide a resume on request.
