Below are some samples of work I produced before returning to school to study planning. These pieces reflect my experience with roads and transportation, new technology, and making important and complex cultural movements relevant to a general audience.
This Is America’s Greatest Secret Road—Jalopnik Investigates
A video I produced for Jalopnik profiling California State Road 33. It was our goal to make a profile of a road more visually engaging than mere static shots of asphalt.
That Time I Sat In The Volkswagen Golf Of The Future & Got Yelled At
My final written piece for Jalopnik, this is both a review of a new Volkswagen concept car and a recap of my tenure as head of Jalopnik video.
Tesla's Autopilot System Is Creepy And Wonderful
I produced, shot, and edited this video, perhaps the first in the world depicting a non-Tesla driver using the new autopilot system. This became Gawker’s most-viewed video (currently at 4 million unique views on YouTube), and was featured on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, The Today Show, and others.
Why Arguments About Colin Kaepernick’s Method Of Protest Fall Short
Kaepernick’s National Anthem protest. The challenge was conveying a complex, nuanced issue through a medium that lends itself to broad superficiality.
A Thanksgiving tribute to Native American athletes
As Associate Producer for Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, I made it my goal to use their culture and humor page, which was largely known for cringeworthy and often misogynistic content, to promote diversity and human stories on SI.com. I published this piece in 2014, and they continue to rerun it every year on Thanksgiving.
