Video projects at State have picked up in the Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA)! I’ve had the opportunity to not only meet and film many wonderful participants from our programs, such as TechWomen, Museums Connect, GSMP, Humphrey Fellows, and Special Olympics Coaching Fellows, but also write and produce campaign videos! My first campaign video for State, that I produced (writing -> shooting -> editing) just went live for International Education Week (IEW) 2013! We’ve have seen great viewership so far! Check it out:
At the beginning of August I accepted a job offer as a Video Producer at the US Department of State in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). As the Video Producer I’m in charge of producing, shooting, and editing web-videos about the Bureau’s program and initiatives, such as The Fulbright Program, The International Writing, Program and many more! Take a look some of the videos I’ve produced so far:
It was my pleasure to work with the Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance (AGLA) to design and launch their new website: agla.org

On the side I have taken up a few photography gigs, one of which was taking unique photos of Washington, D.C. architecture for an office redesign. The photographs are now hanging on the walls in the Office of Chief Counsel in New Carrollton. Check out some of the photographs by clicking on image below:
On March 9, 2012, Tagg Magazine Correspondent, Ashley Linder and I had the pleasure to speak to guests of the 2013 Mautner Project Gala about lesbian health and the Mautner Project. Check out the video I shot and edited below:
Check out the case-study I co-wrote with my colleagues at The Center for New Designs in Learning in Scholarship (CNDLS) in the latest publication of Educase Review Online, entitled, “Using Google+ to Enhance Student Learning, Engagement, and Communication.”
The article is a summary of a two-semester study that examined whether or not Google+ could foster beneficial learning communities outside of the classroom. It is important to think critically about how these online communities affect the pace and environment of student learning in the years ahead. Read the case study to learn about new frontiers and strategies for teaching with social media platforms in higher education.
On March 14, 2013, Busboys & Poets hosted a screening of my film Labor of Love, a documentary film about lesbian culture in the DC area. While exploring the benefits of such spaces, the film also speculates the need for more community-based LGBTQ spaces in D.C. to serve as “an alternative to the bar, and an alternative to the closet. The screening was a huge success, the room was overcapacity (120+)!
