Alexis K. Barnes
Journalist in Washington D.C.
An experienced journalist by education & trade, I am currently the Information Officer and multimedia manager for USAID's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). Before OFDA, I worked as the communications manager for USAID Haiti, as well as in the United Nations bureau of Al Jazeera English and VICE News in NYC. I have worked and lived in East and Southern Africa, South Korea, and Thailand. I have roots in print journalism, but have evolved into proficiency in video, photo and audio editing and reporting. Currently, I am a Public Health Masters candidate at George Washington University.
