Michael Madrid, International Sports Director for USA TODAY Sports Images, formerly a Senior Photo Editor at USA TODAY, has worked for the organization since 1996.

Madrid’s assignments have taken him across the country and around the globe, providing a tremendous learning experience and an opportunity to work with amazingly talented colleagues. From tornadoes and hurricanes to Olympic Games, it’s been a ton of work and more fun than one should be allowed while working – hopefully sharing moments of time, place and emotion with readers and viewers all over.

Madrid is based in Colorado with his talented wife and their smiley rescued labrador, Kalita.
