Alexa Keefe’s passion for storytelling began at a young age with creative writing, followed by a degree in French literature. For the past 14 years, her passion has found expression in the pairing of photography with real life stories, first as a photo archivist atU.S. News and World Reportand then as a photo editor. In 2011, Keefe joined the digital photography team at National Geographic, where she is a Senior Photo Editor. The most rewarding part of her job is helping to bring the experiences of photographers and visual storytellers to life on National Geographic’s Proof blog.
Keefe lives in Washington, D.C. with her nine year-old daughter. When not experiencing the world from her ergonomically-correct desk, she finds inspiration in D.C.’s many green spaces and finding back roads to explore.
