Social Media Assets and Work Samples
Instagram allows me the opportunity to combine my passion for photography with the city I love and tell the story of #myneworleans. Over the last six months I've made connections there that otherwise would have been impossible. As a result of these connections, I had four pictures featured in a Washington Post photo collaboration story, assisted National Geographic photographer Tyrone Turner with a photography workshop in the Ninth Ward as well as a French Quarter photo walk, and filmed "Bouncercise" auditions for a big Freedia dancer.
Have created content that has been shared on the social media channels of Defend New Orleans, Preservation Hall, Gambit, New Orleans Marriott, NOLA.com, and City Park.
Assisted the Your Shot team with logistical support, promotion and trouble shooting for weekend photography workshop for residents of the Lower Ninth Ward and helped National Geographic photographer Tyrone Turner mange the needs of workshop participants.

A co-worker and I created and designed Hawker because we kept seeing amazing work created by our middle school students that wasn't being shared outside individual classrooms. Hawker is an all-digital space where middle school students write and share articles on life in middle school. As faculty moderator of Hawker, I created and implemented a positive thinking campaign that was designed to highlight the positive characteristics of each individual student. Students' submitted positive responses about their classmates via a Google Form, which I then turned into a unique keepsake for the "Be Awesome" student of the day.
I first used Twitter in 2009 because I wanted an easier way to send pictures and updates while on class trips. Since that first trip, I have seen Twitter evolve into a tool for breaking news, community building, networking, and customer feedback.
Ask the FQ is a social media experiment that aims to offer genuine New Orleans recommendations to tourist and locals using common social media tools. Currently on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Started January 2016.
Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that uses both analytical tools and real world observations to solve problems. In the summer of 2014, I was selected to lead a group of students in a Leadership + Design workshop that used the design thinking process to come up with creative solutions for improving transportation in downtown New Orleans.
Stop Motion Video
I am always looking for new ways to combine my interests and try new creative projects. My son and I decided to make a stop motion music video using his collection of Potato Head toys.
