Monroeville, Alabama: A closer look at Harper Lee’s Hometown

Ol’ Curiosities & Book Shoppe: A new chapter in an old book

This was by far the most challenging assignment I’ve had. My professor wanted me to go completely out of my comfort zone for our final project, a two-part profile on a town in Alabama. Despite the tight deadline, I was able to make six visits to the town and interview as many people that were willing to talk to me about Nelle Harper Lee and the impact her book had on the town. I enjoyed getting to know complete strangers and realized I love writing slice of life stories, personality profiles and community journalism. I was actually sad when it came time to edit these stories but grateful for the opportunity.

Multimedia Journalism/Digital Storytelling

Auburn’s Farm to Table Movement

This was a semester-long endeavor that I would gladly do again. After building a website on Wix, I conducted several rounds of  interviews with various restaurant owners, businesses, farmers and consumers. Throughout the semester, I learned how to meet short deadlines, edit film and take photos/video on a Nikon and how to be a multimedia journalist. All photos, videos and interviews were conducted by myself.

Color Story/Profile

Red Clay Brewery: Craft Beers & Board Games

I was able to go behind the scenes for this story and spend more time learning not just about the business but about the craft beer industry and the impact it has on the town. I would love to a follow up piece on this business now that they’ve celebrated their one-year anniversary.
