As a journalist, I go around the world searching for a story. Sometimes you stumble upon a story you wish you could forget. While filming an independent documentary about an expedition to Mt. Everest, an avalanche almost kills me. On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake ravages Nepal and releases an avalanche over Everest base camp. I provide the Dateline production team with footage for the show and also work for NBC news on the ground in Nepal during the making.
