Brett Marsh

Class of 2021

I am a photographer, educator, and writer based in Oakland, CA. My work has ranged from exploring housing trends and inequality in Cairo, Egypt, to documenting the ongoing peace process and rural-urban migration in Colombia.

Prior to joining the Class of 2021, I taught computer science and Digital Literacy to middle school students here in the Bay Area.

I am interested in pursuing stories on inequality, environment, social conflict, and urbanization using a wide-range of multimedia tools.
