In 2015, I helped teach a summer multimedia journalism course in Hawaii for the Stony Brook University School of Journalism. I joined another professor and several undergraduate and graduate students as we shadowed a team of NASA scientists, including Astronaut Rick Mastracchio, in Hawaii. The scientists, working on a project for NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), collected valuable data on the glassy terrain at Kilauea Volcano. I taught the student journalists how to gather the facts, tease out the narrative and use their DSLRs, video cameras and audio recorders to produce the story. Afterwards, I collected their work and created a long-form WordPress site that told the story of the scientists’ work. Click here to explore.code photo videocam school
In early 2012, I spent a week in Havana, Cuba. I worked alongside a team of student-journalists, documenting Havana's changing sociopolitical landscape following Raul Castro's ascension to the presidency of Cuba. I wrote, took photos, and produce videos.
