At MIT, I was a course developer who worked to quickly meet deadlines for delivering online courses such as Launching Innovation in Schools. Responsibilities included:
I also contributed to the online course Design Thinking for Leading & Learning, which helped education leaders learn about design thinking and explore how it can transform classroom learning and school communities.View Website
The MIT150 was a high-profile web/video project that celebrated the history of MIT. For this project, I served as a project manager who edited videos that featured prominent MIT faculty.View Website
During the MIT150, I was responsible for assembling videos for an expansive oral history project. While curating that project, I started to pull different themes or stories that would show a hidden side of MIT. One story was how a surprising number of MIT professors spent their childhoods in farming communities.
Another story that I was able to tell was how, in 1968, a group of MIT students formed the Black Students' Union and advocated for change.
Before transitioning to video, I worked as a columnist for the Boston Phoenix and staff reporter for Bay Windows in Boston. I filed weekly arts and news articles, contributed features, and captured images to complement articles.
