DREW REID KERR

Drew is a communications consultant who grew up in both the Flushing and Howard Beach areas of Queens. He later lived in Kew Gardens for 10 years.

Before opening his consultancy, Drew worked for CBS Magazines (remember those?) and then Radio City Music Hall Productions, where he hung out with Santa Claus from the Christmas show, rehearsed with the Rockettes at Super Bowl XXII, and arranged for a Russian brown bear from the Moscow Circus to throw out the first pitch at a Mets game.

His street photography project, Faces Of The 7 Train, was shot over a period of six years.

In October 2018, Drew was lucky enough to be chosen to tell a story in front of a live audience for The Moth.

He shot, edited, composed and played the music for a short video about the isolation of the Coronavirus pandemic called "Distance" in April 2020.

"A Great Place To Live," Drew's photographic exploration of a little-known section of Howard Beach, will go live online in the first half of 2022.

Drew lives in Manhattan, NY.
