Jenny M. Buccos

Director & Producer

Jenny grew up in the tiny town of Fonda in upstate New York. She applied for her first passport in 2000, and took her first trip abroad when she was in her early 20s. Since then, she has travelled to 71 countries across 6 continents.

Over the last 7 years, she has directed & produced nearly 500 episodes ProjectExplorer.org. As a filmmaker, she’s walked with lions, filmed underwater, hung out of helicopters and airplanes, and bungee jumped from nuclear cooling towers – all to get the perfect shot!

In July 2012, she was recognized by the Obama Administration as a White House Champion of Change for her work with ProjectExplorer.org. In October 2013, she was named “Top 40 Innovator in Education“ by the Center for Digital Education.
