Video & Audio Storytelling

Through beat reporting, long-form multimedia projects, courses at Medill and former internships, I developed a strong interest in visual and audio storytelling: mastering broadcast and radio writing, reporting, and editing techniques; learning about video and audio composition, sequencing, and filming; pitching platform-appropriate story ideas, shooting, outlining scripts and writing copy; and producing news, feature and short-doc packages. These are some of those stories.
