Lessons from working in the White House

On the eve of the inauguration of America’s 45th president, Harvard graduate students share their experiences of working inside the White House. It was a pleasure to meet these women and men as I made this video for Harvard Business School.

The invention of “instant” photography

I began this multimedia project by recording an audio interview with Melissa Banta, curator of the exhibit – “At the intersection of science and art: Edwin Land and the Polaroid Corporation” – at the Baker Library of Harvard Business School. The library’s special collections director Laura Linard provided me with digital scans of the Polaroid images. I edited the piece in After Effects.

Commencement 2016

I shot and edited this video about this year’s Commencement ceremony at Harvard Business School. Student Marcelle de Souza Goncalves Meira received long applause; her husband Pedro, also a member of the MBA Class of 2016, succumbed to cancer last fall.

Precision Medicine

I learned a lot about precision medicine when shooting and editing this piece that features Kerri, a young mother battling choriocarcinoma. She gracefully volunteered to appear in this video promoting a call for help in transforming the clinical trials process to bring new medicines targeted to patients’ personal genomes to market faster.

The overnight baker

The muffins and pastries served in dining rooms and at gatherings around campus are made from scratch in the Harvard Business School kitchen. Kimberly Aguiar, overnight baker, makes sure they come out just right.
I shot and edited this story for publication by the Harvard Business School on its internal websites as well as its social media channels.

It’s autumn in Boston

It’s an annual event that never ceases to amaze. I created this video for Harvard Business School students, staff and alumni.

Video storytelling as marketing

I shot and edited this video in my new position as digital media manager and producer at the Harvard Business School.

Topping off timelapse

Harvard Business School held a “Topping Off” ceremony for the new Executive Education facility—the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center. The “Topping Off” ceremony is a long-standing tradition derived from an ancient Scandinavian builders rite held when the final beam is placed atop a structure.

Enough already

It snowed today. Again.

The value of professional photojournalism

It’s nice to see Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki featured in this video that is part of a research project by the National Press Photographer’s Association:
