So, I’m not the best at blogging and keeping things up-to-date, we know that. But, a lot of big changes have taken place in the last few months. I have left the beautiful city of Louisville, Ky. to move to New York City and follow my dream of being a freelance doc video editor and cinematographer. Life looks a lot different these days. A lot of commuting on trains and working in co-working spaces.
My time at the Courier Journal and in Louisville has shaped me greatly. Spending a year at a mid-sized daily working on photo and video projects, as well as faster-paced breaking news, helped me cut my teeth and refine my passions. Above, you can see much of what I worked on in my final months at the CJ. I took on a lot more photo work than I expected during my year at the paper. I was able to travel and help other USA Today papers. I worked on quick turn around videos as well as a large project thrown in here and there. It now all, mostly, exists on this plane.
I learned a lot about who I am as a visual artist during my time at the paper. I learned a lot about what I like and what I don’t. I love newspapers with all of my heart and I’m incredibly thankful I was able to work at one in a town I love. I’m so grateful I was able to make a family at mine. I made great friendships with reporters and the other young talent that lives in the CJ’s newsroom.
I have a lot of feelings about leaving the city I called home for the longest time in 3 years. I miss it often and dearly. But, I am incredibly excited for things to come and for this new chapter of life.
Thank you for stopping by. And as always,
