meet the team
Mark is the team's writer, photographer, and catalyst for sneaking into cool places. He has conducted investigations with the Medill Justice Project and the Medill Watchdog. He also wrote for The Star newspaper in South Africa, where he reported on Johannesburg's seedy underworld whenever he wasn't busy trying the local cuisine. He will soon begin work for The Arizona Republic, but he is constantly in search of new adventures abroad. His work can be found at http://www.markolalde.com.
Fritz's addition to the team was videography, blogging, and a love for every stray dog in the Caribbean. He has reported on Capitol Hill with the Medill News Service, edited documentaries with Chicago's Picture Show Films, investigated transparency issues with the Medill Watchdog, and taught journalism skills to inner-city youth with Medill Media Teens. He was first dragged onto one of Mark's projects when the pair co-founded a sports website in 2012, and he is now preparing for a Mark-free future in broadcast journalism.
