STRLING "Effortlessly" MV - Behind The Scenes (Sep 2021)
Two late nights in early September, I photographed and videotaped behind the scenes footage of Chicago Alt-Pop Duo STRLING's music video shoot for their song "Effortlessly". I tried to capture moments of self expression, fearlessness, and glam. Above are candid pictures of "The Glam Monster", and below are some highlights along with a BTS reel of the band/cast from before, during, and after the video shoot.

Future Founders Interview Series (Feb-Apr 2021)
In early 2021, Future Founders reached out to me to see if I would be interested in freelancing some writing pieces for their website & blog. For 3 months, I conducted interviews with a wide array of students & entrepreneurs in the Future Founders Network. Not only did I get to have one-on-one conversations with successful innovators, I got to share their stories with my own voice and writing style. These stories were then used to attract new program applicants and funding for the Future Founders program. For me, the most rewarding aspect of this experience was putting the founders' brands in front of new customers, myself included (@Ardent Candle).
ChiME Virtual Job Fair - Consulting & Video Project (Dec 2020 - Feb 2021)
Around Christmas time in 2020, I was approached by a family friend who serves on the board of the Chaplaincy Institue of Maine (ChiME), asking for my help with a special project. Usually, ChiME held in-person job fairs to connect alumni with recent graduates of their program, however, due to COVID 19 they could not hold the event that year.
Tasked with creating a virtual job-fair, I developed an alumni outreach strategy, questions, content standards/guidelines, and a contact list to ultimately create a multi-purpose video for the Institue. With limited time and budget, I ended up producing and editing the video as well. Since then, ChiME has used the full video and portions of the video for recruitment and networking purposes.
