During the spring of 2017, I spent the semester in New York City working for TheChisel as an Multi-Media Journalist Intern where my main focus was to help promote and launch their 'What's Your American Dream?' Survey. For the short video below I pitched, scripted, filmed and produced the content that went out in 30M+ emails and dozens of social media posts promoting the survey. Along with writing the script, I was tasked on finding actors and costuming for all the characters on an extremely limited budget. The video was shot on my Canon 70D and edited in Adobe Premiere.
I also strategized, wrote and managed all social media content and platforms. I built the back end infrastructure for the company's social platforms and wrote the social media guideline handbook for the next social media manager.
Visual Storytelling & Marketing Internship
During the summer of 2015, I interned at SoldierUP in Kansas City, Missouri. As the Visual Storytelling/Marketing Intern, I worked to effectively communicate the crux of SoldierUp through visual storytelling mediums. Through continuous communication with the CEO of SoldierUp, I maintained and sharpened the brand of the company by creating content for their website, blog and social media outlets. I met with veterans who have joined the SoldierUp community to understand their story as well as how SoldierUp has helped project their growing businesses. While building relationships with the veterans, I interviewed, filmed and photographed them in order to communicate the benefits and opportunities present within the SoldierUp community to the general public.
