In 2012, following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, I spent a weekend volunteering with the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) mission in the Rockaways.

My submission to WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show "Best 2012 Cell Phone Pictures" - a panoramic image of a Rockaways school gymnasium filled with donated relief supplies - was ranked third best, out of hundreds of submissions, by New York Times senior staff photographer and Lens blog co-editor 
James Estrin.
