Joe Yaggi is the Creative Supervisor for Jungle Run Productions. An award-winning filmmaker, he launched his career as a video kayaker on rivers from California to Costa Rica and Alaska to Africa before settling in Indonesia in 1993. Here he has worked as producer, director, cameraman, editor, whitewater consultant and coffee-maker.
With a thirst for challenging projects, Joe drags Jungle Run from the reefs of Papua to the forests of Kalimantan, from tsunami-wracked Aceh to the mountains of Sulawesi. He ushered the organization into a new level of engagement with the series Media in Motion, forged a partnership with Television Trust for the Environment Asia Pacific. Joe pecks at his computer only when he has to, particularly as it presents new opportunities to send JRP to far-flung reaches of the archipelago.
