Colleen Hagerty


Colleen has spanned the globe with her camera in hand to share unknown, interesting, and inspiring stories. Some of her recent assignments have taken her from Thailand, where she spent a night on an uninhabited island, to Australia, where she covered a rare disease affecting Tasmanian Devils.

Based in New York City, she started her career at television station NY1, reporting on major stories including Hurricane Sandy and New York Fashion Week. Along with her work in TV, she contributes to a number of online publications, including the BBC, Al Jazeera’s AJ+, and USA Today.

Colleen has travelled to more than 20 countries and is always dreaming of her next journey. Her favorite adventures include paragliding in Nepal, kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland, and scuba diving in Borneo.
