Solana Pyne is GlobalPost's senior video producer, based in New York City. Before taking this position, she spent several years abroad, producing award-winning pieces for GlobalPost from North Africa, South America and South Asia.
A journalist in print and video since 2001, Pyne associate produced documentaries for the PBS science series NOVA. She also spent three years covering criminal justice for the New York City CNN affiliate NY1 News. She worked on-camera and behind it — shooting, writing and editing breaking news and features. She reported on a city stunned by police shootings, hobbled by the 2005 transit strike and riveted by the state's first federal death sentence in 50 years.
Pyne began her reporting career as a health and science journalist working in print. She drew on a background in biology and environmental science and her early work appeared in The Village Voice, Discover Magazine, Science, The Los Angeles Times, Newsday and other publications. Pyne also worked in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, as a reporter and associate editor for the English-language newspaper The Cambodia Daily, where she covered environmental abuses and government corruption. She still misses riding her dirt bike to interviews, and remains convinced that cocktails of cobra blood and brandy do not make one stronger.
