For the past 4 years, National Geographic has teamed up with DC's Brightest Young Things to put on an evening event at the NG headquarters as a way of bringing young professionals into the National Geographic fold. Sounds professional, but it's basically a big party for 2,000 millenials, complete with NG Explorer talks, DJs, food trucks, and lots of booze. This year's theme was Indiana Jones, which meant guests showed up in what were some of the most inventive field/Indy costumes imaginable. Fun was had by all, and I was supremely impressed by the quality of the audience's questions after what was a good 2 boozy hours into the event.

Compulsory @natgeo backstage seriousness before going on stage. Check out the websites/work of some of my kickass NG Explorer colleagues: Erin Spencer, Anand Varma, Jonathan Mehring, Annie Fitzsimmons and Paatrick Meier.
