Series & Special Projects
Produced within an overarching narrative framework, the following videos are examples of series and special projects I've helped create.
Dutchess Community College, Jan. 2018 - present
"Inside the Classroom"
An ongoing series of faculty testimonials showcasing the daily inner workings of a DCC class.
Poughkeepsie Journal, Dec. 2014 - Dec. 2017
"Hudson Valley Forward"
Hudson Valley Forward was a project chronicling residents of the Hudson Valley who are navigating the growing nontraditional work landscape. In additional to four of the seven vignettes, I also produced the overview video for the project.
"What I Love"
"What I Love" was a series focusing on Dutchess County residents and their hobbies.
Patio Sessions was a series filmed over two consecutive summers showcasing local musicians with performances on the patio outside of the Poughkeepsie Journal building.
"The Long Road Home"
This was an eight-month-long project I put together on my own at the Journal. Focusing on five local veterans, the series depicted each of their successes and challenges while readjusting back to the civilian world. I also wrote the accompanying written piece and took all of the photos.
Special Project: Independent Cambridge
Independent Cambridge was a semester-long project I completed with three of my peers for my final undergraduate journalism class at Boston University--a "senior capstone" project, if you will. Using the skills we developed over the last three years, we decided to profile four local, independently owned businesses in Cambridge, MA, and examine their struggles and triumphs. We created a Wordpress-based website, four videos and articles, dozens of photographs, quizzes, and accompanying graphics. My main contribution involved the two videos you see here, although I also copy-edited the articles, took photos, and designed all of the logos and graphics. You can see the finished product here.
Strength for Life, Summer 2013
During the summer of 2013 I offered my services to Strength for Life, a non-profit organization that provides exercise programs for cancer survivors. This series of testimonials was the final product.
