BEHIND THE SCENES
Presidential Palace in Brasilia, Brazil. Lula told me I needed to go to Copacabana to get a suntan, to which I responded, "The sun and I don't get along." He told me he didn't think it would kill me.

Theater stage, Seattle. Location shoots always offer up unique challenges, but cubicle life would be impossible for me.

This is me wiring up President Bill Clinton for an interview. The Clintons are two of my favorite subjects.

BEHIND THE SCENES
Transporting equipment is a big part of my job. We live in a world where you have to be at the airport 3 hours in advance just to get checked in on time, and on international flights we have to go through customs before we leave with a merchandise passport. I think I know every airline requirement for luggage by heart now.

iPhone - This is the embassy to Afghanistan in New York. I am not a producer, but since I am always traveling with Marco it becomes part of my job to handle the logistics.

BEHIND THE SCENES
iPhone - We travel around 200 days a year. Here, I was trying to get to Frankfurt during a winter storm to meet Marco on our way to Beirut. I ended up getting stranded at JFK for 36 hours, finally arriving in Germany with a lost piece of luggage.

BEHIND THE SCENES
With Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. I've only been this nervous twice in my time with Marco. (James Nachtwey was even more daunting.)
