Chicago, IL

As a storyteller you find yourself in different places, in different situations, and with different people constantly.

My stories started innocently enough in Miami where I was born to wonderful Cuban immigrants. I learned my craft at the University of Florida where I earned a degree in journalism and studied photojournalism and videography. I covered music, local issues, and sports for publications like The Gainesville Sun, Reax magazine, and The Fine Print where I was a contributor when it won Best New Publication from Campus Progress.

My time covering music at UF lead me to traveling the country with local Gainesville band Morningbell after I graduated to shoot a documentary that I'm currently editing. 

To learn more about documentary I worked as the Digital Arts and Publishing Intern at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. I assisted in the producetion and marketing of such books as Iraq | Perspectives, Colors of Confinement, In This Timeless Time, and One Place. In addition, I co-edited the festival program for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.  

I currently find myself newly married and searching for more stories in Chicago. If you have a story or adventure shoot me an email at jmoraphoto@gmail.com

Protesting Student Shooting

Hundreds gathered on the University of Florida's campus to protest the the shooting of a graduate student by campus police.

Kofi Adu-Brempong was shot March 2, 2010 by campus police during an altercation in his campus apartment.

Police were contacted by Adu-Brempong’s colleagues who described him as delusional ever since he started worrying that his student-visa wouldn’t be renewed. Adu-Brempong, a native of Ghana, thought he would be sent back to his country and killed.

According to the police report, after talking with the student for over an hour they were worried he was hurting himself and entered his apartment where they found the student with a knife in his hand. Police say Adu-Brempong attacked the officers with the knife and a metal rod, and after rubber bullets failed to subdue him they shot the student.

Protesters are concerned about the way police handled the situation. They also question the facts in the report because Adu-Brempong suffers from polio and some protesters don’t believe that he had the strength to continue struggling after the rubber bullets.
