It’s an exciting day for the Storm family, and for MediaStorm!
We found out this morning that my wife Elodie has won the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University for the 2016-17 academic year.
The JSK Journalism Fellowships program champions innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership in journalism, by helping fellows pursue their ideas, formulated as “journalism challenges,” to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public.
Elodie’s fellowship will focus on developing solutions to one of the most pressing questions facing our profession: How can photojournalism thrive financially in the age of social media?
I’m so excited to see her focus on this critical issue with the support of the best minds in the world at Stanford.

As Elodie’s proud spouse, I also gain access to the program as a JSK Affiliate. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to challenge myself and grow new skills in the heart of Silicon Valley.
While I intend to take full advantage of these incredible opportunities, I will continue to lead the great team at MediaStorm. Serendipitously, our newest client is based in the Bay Area – stay tuned for more soon!
MediaStorm has been based in New York City for the past 11 years, but we have collaborated with contributors and clients from around the world. We have developed great processes for collaborating digitally and leveraging talent in diverse locations.
In fact, for the past year we have been working without a physical office and have honed our process in ways that make expanding our talent pool even easier in the future.
To our Pacific Coast friends, partners, and audience members–I’m looking forward to getting to know you better; to working with you to push the craft of storytelling even further; and to building new relationships that make our community stronger.
