New York Times

Multimedia journalist and cameraman.

To Whom it May Concern:

Jorge Melchor is a skilled multi-media journalist who immerses himself in his work. He has considerable experience working in television as a producer, fixer and cameraman but I’m a newspaper journalist and Jorge was a great help to me as well. He played a major role in an article and Web project that The New York Times prepared last year in Mexico City. It was a sensitive subject matter: how many Mexican men have an unconventional sense of sexual identity than makes fighting AIDS a challenge. Jorge helped me track down men willing to be interviewed, which was no small feat. And he interviewed them, filmed them and helped produce a video project for the Web that attracted significant viewership and acclaim. I highly recommend Jorge to any journalist or news organization.
