Success Academy's "Slam the Exam" rally at Radio City Music Hall

Success Academy’s “Slam the Exam” Rally at Radio City Music Hall

In March, I was one of two photographers documenting Success Academy’s “Slam the Exam” pep rally at Radio City Music Hall. I covered the balcony while my colleague worked in the orchestra. The rally, attended by more than 3,500 students, was meant to pump kids up so they will score well on state tests.

Olive Oil Sommelier Certification Course at the International Culinary Center

Olive Oil Sommelier Certification Course at the International Culinary Center

I had the unique experience of photographing a few hours of a certification course for olive oil sommeliers at the International Culinary Center. According to Olive Oil Times, the course was

“…an intensive week-long program where more than 110 olive oils were sniffed, sipped and analyzed…. International Culinary Center in New York and the Olive Oil Times Education Lab conferred their Sommelier Certification to 26 olive oil virtuosos from 11 countries….
Over the course of the seven-day program, nine instructors from Spain, Italy, Greece and the United States led students through an exploration of olive oil health benefits, production, sensory science, chemistry, culinary applications and instructional tastings of oils from every region.

“The candidates needed to pass rigorous testing to show they had acquired the skills to reliably recognize the sensory characteristics of olive oil samples. Curtis Cord, executive director of the International Culinary Center Olive Oil Program, credited his staff of instructors, the huge number of oils assembled, and the hard work of the participants for the successful results.

“Participants came from as far as Uruguay, Mexico, Brazil, The Netherlands, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Tunisia and Dubai, and from just as diverse professional backgrounds in their quest to gain a thorough understanding of one of the world’s most important foods.

Match Day at NYU School of Medicine

Match Day at NYU School of Medicine

Match Day marks a dramatic change in the lives of graduating medical students. At exactly noon on March 17, each student of the NYU School of Medicine class of 2017 was handed an envelope containing a letter stating which hospital has accepted him or her for residency. It’s an extremely emotional experience for the students and their friends and family.
