In December I signed a deal to produce content for a brand-new English language section of the official Brazil Tourism website. When complete, it will be the American traveler’s best resource for destination knowledge and interesting stories about Brazil—far beyond Rio de Janeiro.
Peter Berg’s industry-leading documentary production company jumped at the chance to develop Special Forces medical foundation Team-45 for television, with me and my creative partner in the executive producer spots alongside founder Eric Linder.

An old but great photo, from one of the all-time most relaxing work moments.
