Many thanks to @icon.mann and @amyelisajackson for this wide-ranging conversation for their new issue.
I share experiences from my time in Washington, methods for maintaining mental health and explain the double edged sword having an accent is for a broadcaster.
It was fun chat - read the full article at iconmann.com

What it took for our @cbsnews team to return from the remote Bahamian islands impacted by Dorian.
Jumping from a dinghy into waters off the beach, then hiking to the air strip where we planned to feed out our footage to HQ.
The story of resilient fishing communities bracing for incoming rains aired on @cbsthismorning + @cbseveningnews on Friday. . . . .

We found Mrs. Thomas still in a state of shock, holding a shovel amid Dorian’s devastation. Mrs. Pinder watched anxiously as @cityofmiamifirerescue + @miamidadefirerescue used a drone to search for the remains of her seven missing relatives. These are just two of the countless stories of survival we witnessed in eastern areas of Grand Bahama Island.
I will never forget how exhausted they were yet so thankful to see Americans proving aid. We saw no other groups of first responders during our four days reporting from the island.
Please remember their plight and that it will not end for them, for a very long time.

A melancholy moment closing out our daylong embed with @cityofmiamifirerescue + @miamidadefirerescue after delivering aid, checking-in with survivors and clearing roads.
They were the only first responders many residents on eastern Grand Bahama had seen.
A reminder these groups volunteered their time and resources to the Bahamas partly because they consider people here members of their southern Florida family. . . . . .

A coffin in the sun, a man searching his mother’s devastated home for her passport and other images that will stay with me forever after four days reporting on the ground in Grand Bahama Island. . . .

The Equinor oil spill is widespread.
Here’s what we saw at the site yesterday.
Today the company says “we will clean up the oil spill in the Bahamas.” More to come... #OriginalReporting #prayforthebahamas
A sight I will never forget.
So many layers of trauma for people here.
Saturday sunrise in Freeport.
Aid is slow to be delivered and while some main roads have been cleared essentially everything else remains devastated.
Our @cbsnews reporting continues.
This is why transporting aid east on #GrandBahama is so difficult.
The only road across the island was devastated by #Dorian’s category five winds and intense storm surge.
We will have more for you on the @cbseveningnews.
We established a cell signal moments before arriving in Freeport and quickly filed this report from aboard our “mail boat” vessel carrying crucial aid for the people of Grand Bahama.
Arriving in Freeport with aid from Nassau 11 hours after our ocean journey began.
#Bahamians taking matters into their own hands.
Trying to send as much aid as a possible to relatives on Grand Bahama Island on the first ferry scheduled to reach Freeport since #Dorian slammed the region Sun-Mon.
We will show you their stories on @cbseveningnews + @cbsthismorning.
Today, I am much more appreciate of so many things;
@hurricane_hunters / @af.reserve.hurricane.hunters for taking calculated risks to keep us all safe.
@arianashordy for being cool with my off-the-wall story assignments.
@gilad_thaler for being an awesome colleague to work with (and great photog). But I’m thinking of the people of the #Bahamas - a special place to many including my family. What we saw from the air doesn’t compare to conditions on the ground. 🇧🇸 A good reminder to #bethankful for what you have. .

So glad it all worked.

It feels bittersweet to be in such a beautiful place covering a tragic loss.
My first trip to #Anguilla has been a memorable one - hope to be back 🇦🇮 #carribean #lifeontheroad #scenicsunset
Actually took a moment to enjoy this morning’s airport sunrise 🌞
Wishing you all strength this summer Monday.
Standing by on-set in NY just in case Norah’s signal from DC for the @cbseveningnews went dark.
Thankfully, all went well.
This and anchoring the ‘CBS Overnight News’ was my assignment today. As well as drudging through months of expenses. 😬
The #reportinglife isn’t always fun adventures on the road! Swipe left for a video clip.
