As part of my senior journalism program Capstone course, I investigated and reported on education topics in Bradford County, Florida. In my research I came across a teen parenting program where Bradford County educators may have discovered a way to counteract the high dropout rate of teen parents in the area. The full video and supplemental written story published on the WUFT-FM website can be found here.
The New Leaf Market Farm Tours is an annual event held in Tallahassee each fall where locals can tour different farms surrounding Leon County. I took all of these images, and the close-up picture of the man picking peas was awarded 1st place in the 2012 Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Awards in Region 3.
As part of experimentation with data visualization using Adobe InDesign, I created this interactive graphic showing the charities supported by the 2o top most followed users on Twitter (last updated Dec. 5, 2011 at 5:13 p.m.). When each name is clicked, the charities that Twitter user supports will darken. Unfortunately, since the file is too large, it cannot be seen on this website, but you can see the before and after image when”Justin Beiber’s” name is clicked.
I reported on education in Bradford County, Fla. for a capstone project in spring 2013. WUFT.org published one of my videos on teen parenting courses offered through the high school and preschool. This visual I made after publication using Google Fusion Tables to help understand the the population of the counties in Florida.
These are some examples of environmental portraits and headshots I’ve photographed.
Studying abroad had been a dream of mine since elementary school. The summer of 2012 gave me the opportunity to live my dream and travel to Italy for a language and history program. I visited Rome, Cinque Terre, Venice, Florence, Ischia, Pompeii, Tivoli and Orvieto in my first time outside the country. View my blog I kept while abroad here.
In 2012 I designed a logo for the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) 2013 conference. I placed 2nd in the national competition with this logo.
