Boston Police Peace Walks

This video received an honorable mention for General Assignment/Serious News at the New England College Emmy Awards in 2016.

After a night of gun violence left three people dead in August 2015, the Boston Police Department began a series of Peace Walks through city neighborhoods. Officers gathered with clergy and community leaders on dozens of nights to walk the streets of Boston.

I conducted interviews and helped to produce this video on Boston Police peace walks.

Sardine Family Circus entertains scores in San Francisco

Forget balancing a checkbook. 

Orion Griffiths spends his days balancing atop a wooden board perched on a rolling cylinder. The 27-year-old street performer entertains scores of San Francisco spectators who look on in awe as he juggles clubs and stands on his hands, without falling 10 feet.

Most people would probably opt for the checkbook task, but Griffiths loves his job. He’s a member, along with his parents and adult siblings, of the Sardine Family Circus – named for a funny scene in which the Griffiths piled out of a packed RV.

This was the very first video story I filmed, edited and produced.

Creating Their Own Labels

For the final project in my Video News Production class, two classmates and I pitched, filmed and edited three stories on the theme of programs for people with disabilities. The project was entitled "Creating Their Own Labels." We presented the project on a class blog as a combination of the videos, a written story and additional multimedia components, such as a photo slideshow and interactive map.
