Hi, I’m Ludwig. I do a lot of things and I’m passionate about all of them.

I’m a writer, filmmaker, host, and multi-disciplinary artist. 

My work has appeared in The New York Times, New York Magazine, NBC News, Bon Appetit, The Atlantic’s CityLab, Vice, The Nation, Paper, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, i_D, Them, The Face, and other publications.

I am an editor at The Nation, where I serve as executive producer of all the magazine’s podcasts, video series, photo essays, and special projects. 

Before working at The Nation, I was a producer at NBC News where I produced and directed documentary shorts and video stories across NBC's platforms, including award-winning episodes of NBC's flagship newsmagazine show, Dateline, and the streaming network, NBC News NOW. 

I was an on-camera correspondent for NBC Latino, NBC Out, and NBC LX.

I host the Food Futures podcast produced by MOLD Magazine.

My work has been recognized with an Edward R Murrow award, a GLAAD media award, and a Webby award.

I’m a proud member of the National Association for Hispanic Journalists, the Queer Producers Network, and the Video Consortium.

I was one of 17 filmmakers in DOC NYC’s Storytelling Incubator for 2022.

I’m currently directing a documentary film about housing insecurity and displacement. I’m writing and directing a scripted comedy TV series about a community garden. I’m writing a book about food and gentrification.

I am available to give lectures and workshops on multimedia. In the past, I’ve given talks at Columbia University, UCLA, Bard College, and The City University of New York. I’m a lecturer at Hunter College. 

My artistic practice includes photo illustration, animation, virtual reality, painting, sculpture, and design. 

I also model and DJ, but who doesn’t?
