Audio and Slideshows

Ball Bearings Magazine became a student media priority for me my sophomore year of college, in 2011. I worked as a print and online reporter for two years until I wanted to advance into a leadership role. I dedicated my senior year to overseeing teams of reporters, photographers, designers and videographers to construct more sophisticated multimedia pieces. I motivated beginning reporters to get out into the field. I helped them learn how to properly conduct an interview, edit gathered audio into a story for slideshows and write text stories. Below are a mix of multimedia pieces that I reported, photographed and/or produced.

History Behind Hoyt Avenue

The stories I have reported, produced and/or photographed for Ball Bearings Magazine range from campus life pieces, how-to clickables, photo galleries and life in Muncie, Ind.

One of my favorite slideshows I composed played a large role in my promotion to a producer for Ball Bearings Magazine. I single-handedly reported and photographed the history behind Bob Hoyt and his family. Stories about Muncie, including "Opportunity on Adams Street," are often my favorite because they are rich in cutlure and history. I find these stories the most interesting and close to what I hope to do as a career at a city magazine or museum one day.

Ghyslain Richmond Bistro: 

The Taste Buds' Trip to France

I created this audio slideshow as a visual component of a larger story about Ghyslain Richmond Bistro. It is one installment of the dining guide website, Order Up Indiana, which was built as a team project for Building Better Communities Fellowship. I also authored a more in depth audio piece for Indiana Public Radio News Blog (IPR), which can be heard on their website through the link below.
