He focuses on health care stories, producing compelling visual content using video, still photos, panoramas, motion graphics, timelines, and infographics.  He is always seeking out new methods and technologies that will help him tell powerful stories.

An experienced photojournalist, Nixon brings his knowledge of the region and its issues to the stories he works on.  As a staff photographer for Gold Country Media, he developed a visual style that translates well to video and web-only platforms, including interactive multimedia.

Nixon is easy to identify among the Capital Public Radio staff.  He's the one with all the cameras who's fond of using outdated slang.
