Well the countdown has begun. In a little less than 2 weeks I will be heading back to Port Au Prince for my 2nd excursion to Haiti since January's devastating earthquake. I was fortunate enough to be invited to go on a medical relief trip with an organization called New Reality International and I am thrilled to be going back with them again. I will be traveling with a small group of doctors, nurses and other relief workers to help provide medical care which is so desperately needed by the people of Haiti...and has been for many years now. The last time I went to Haiti, I was very fortunate to receive donations from family and friends to help foot the rather hefty costs of getting there (and back). Thank you so much to all of you who donated and/ or sent me your well-wishes. This time around, I am footing

Many of you know already that last month I traveled to Haiti with an organization called NRI, New Reality International. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life and although I've had about 5 weeks to process everything emotionally, even now I can barely describe the amazing friendships I made, with both the North American medical team I traveled with as well as our Haitian translators. I will share my images and some stories here on the blog over the next few weeks but in the meantime I wanted to share this little video/ photo slideshow I worked on over the weekend. I hope you enjoy. If you'd like to do something to help the people of Haiti who still desperately need the help, please visit www.newrealityinternational.org to donate money, tents, medical supplies or to find out what other ways you might be able to contribute.

Well something that has been in the works for a few days is now official, I am going to Haiti in about 3 weeks. I've been experiencing such a wide range of emotions from excited to scared sh*tless but mostly I am thrilled to have the opportunity to go and do whatever I can to help the people of Haiti recover from the devastation all around them. So here's the deal. I was invited to go with a group of doctors sponsored by New Reality International, an organization that helps provide free medical treatment to the most poverty stricken nations in the world. My job will be to photographically document the work they are doing in order to help raise money to make further trips to Haiti possible. I also plan to work in the makeshift clinic in whatever non-medical capacities that I can. I'll be flying to Miami on February 26th
