My name is Louie Dane, and I'm an aspiring educator, as well as video photographer/editor living and working in Tel Aviv, Israel. I was born and raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City.
With a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Maryland in my back pocket, I came home to work as a Videojournalist on FiOS1 Long Island's Push Pause, a magazine and features show on Verizon's local cable news channel. After a year in local news, I made the jump into the international sphere, coming on board at the NYC bureau of RT (formerly known as Russia Today) as a Cameraman/Editor. After three years as a full-time videographer, I decided to make Aliyah to Israel and become an English Teacher at the Kfar HaYarok School in Tel Aviv, where I'm also earning a Masters Degree in the Teaching of English as a Second Language.
