Linda Freund

Visual Storyteller

I’ve dedicated my career to telling stories with purpose. As a multimedia journalist, I’ve crisscrossed the globe to investigate social inequality and migration, all with the goal of using visual storytelling to question and reshape conventional narratives. My work spans documentary, radio, and print media for such outlets as The Wall Street Journal, The Independent, Voice of America News, and NPR. Leveraging my editorial news experience, I formed the video production company Blake Media in 2018. We provide full-scale video services and brand consultancy to major Fortune 500 tech companies, startups, and leading research universities.
