Web Design

In spring 2015, I took a web design class and built websites using HTML and CSS. I designed and coded a feature story website and a portfolio site for the class. In fall 2016, I further developed my programming skills, learning how to use Python, web scrapers, APIs and more to produce journalism and business intelligence.


As The Kansas City Star’s first-ever digital news intern, I spent about half of my time producing video for The Star’s YouTube channel. I shot and edited 15 high-quality news videos entirely on an iPhone 6 for the paper. My video work has also been featured in La Curandera, an arts magazine in Buenos Aires, and the Columbia Missourian, a local newspaper based in Columbia, Missouri.

During spring 2014, I produced audio, video and photo work every week for my convergence reporting class. “Rents to increase for public housing residents” was published on Mizzou’s Convergence Journalism website, and “Common Core opponents hold rally at state capitol” aired on KBIA News. Additional audio work can be played on my SoundCloud account.

In addition to producing video and audio content, I have taken pictures for various publications. In fall 2014, I covered arts and culture events for an arts magazine in Argentina called La Curandera. My galleries were posted to the site’s Facebook page which had more than 8,000 likes at the time. In summer 2014, I took pictures for the stories I wrote for Missouri Business Alert, an online business publication in Columbia, Missouri. The following gallery is a compilation of photography for those publications, as well as some additional work I produced for my classes.
