The Source

The Source is an Emmy award-winning documentary uncovering child labor in coffee farms.


I created a site to host the video for this amazing piece of investigative journalism that reveals the deception behind what we believe to be ‘fair-trade’ or ‘organic’ coffee. It was released in conjunction with Telemundo and went on to receive an Emmy in the category of News and Documentary in 2018. Accompanying the video was a 7000-word article by Pulitzer prize-winning author Marcus Stern. It was a very exciting project for me to say the least.

I was tasked with creating this site while permalancing alongside the amazing Lara Schenck. Design by Chris Roy. We created this site in WordPress using the Advanced Custom Field plugin to create the base flexible content system for the back-end.
