Special Olympics Live

In multimedia, video on August 21, 2010 at 3:19 pm

live.specialolympics.org is one of the largest documentary web projects ever attempted. More than 300 volunteers and a dedicated group of faculty and coaches worked on this project for almost two years.

The website grew out of the desire of Special Olympics Vice President Peter Wheeler to share the magic of the World Games with a worldwide audience of athletes, their friends, families, classmates and caring people.

City Concrete Gardens

In multimedia, video, web design on August 18, 2010 at 10:40 pm

City Concrete Gardens is a documentary web project that examines how community gardens stimulate economic development and improve public health in Miami-Dade County’s low-income and minority communities. It is the capstone project for my master’s degree in journalism from the University of Miami in Spring 2010.

I gathered and produced all the content—both written and filmed—as well as designed, planned and programmed the site. This website is culmination of three semesters of very, very long days spent studying multimedia journalism— everything from usability, navigation, design, production to audio and storytelling.

Role: producer/project manager, videographer, web designer, programmer and writer
