Hi, I’m Ludwig. I’m a storyteller. 

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

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

I’m interested in and have reported on various topics including housing, homelessness, gentrification, food justice, incarceration, immigration, politics, music, internet culture, and the Latinx community.

I am the Multimedia Editor at The Nation, where I commission, direct, and executive produce podcasts, video series, and photo essays.

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. I’ve done on-camera correspondent work for NBC Latino, NBC Out, and NBC LX.

I currently 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’m part of DOC NYC’s Storytelling Incubator for 2022.

I’m directing a feature-length film about housing insecurity and displacement in Los Angeles. I’m also writing a book.

I am available to give lectures and host workshops on multimedia journalism. In the past, I’ve given talks at Columbia, UCLA, Bard, and CUNY.
