Welcome! My name is Ryan Connelly Holmes and I am a video journalist committed to telling nuanced and character-driven stories. I’ve worked as a one-man band, shooting, editing and producing my own stories.
My recent adventures have had me covering immigration and criminal justice in Chicago, refugees in Jordan, and health/human interest stories in Washington, D.C. I recently finished my first short documentary about prisoner reentry and re-acclimation in Chicago.
I completed my journalism training at the graduate and undergraduate levels through Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. All good stories interest me, but I am particularly interested in human rights issues. If you have any tips or story leads, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
