HOWDY

I make photographs and films and am based in Washington DC where I am currently the Senior Video Producer & the Deputy Director of Photography at Education Week.

I believe empathy is my strongest skill and all of my stories at their essence revolve around the heart, family and community. I aim to make people laugh just as much as I make them cry.

I have produced work for Facebook, The Department of Defense, The New York Times, Education Week, The PBS NewsHour, Higher Achievement and the National Resources Defense Council to name a few.

I am always looking to collaborate with folks who want to tell impactful stories. If you think we’d be a good fit drop me a line at spatelnmd@gmail.com
