I’m a background guy

October 13th, 2011 · Comments Off on I’m a background guy · Humor, Video

I got to rub elbows with some serious new media newmunati last Thursday for the Felix TV shoot at the Gawker party. It’s been funny seeing myself pop up in the background of all these shots, hard at work while everyone else is partying. And here’s the video that I was shooting:

New camera

August 25th, 2010 · Comments Off on New camera · Humor, Michigan, Photos

As I mentioned earlier, I had a bunch of gear stolen on my last night in NYC. I think one of the things that helped me cope with the loss was knowing that when I returned to Michigan, I would have a brand new camera waiting for me. That’s right, I bit the bullet, cut […]

I jetted home last week for a quick visit. While there, I hung out in the menagerie. This is Bond. Evita. They live here. I live(d?) there. I got some hot dogs with Jeremy. Dan came. Dan’s a vinyl man. Stylin’ in the 49546. Dad’s new board quickly dwarfed the excitement of my graduation. Now […]

I took a trip out to Brownsville today to shoot some video for my Covering Education class. I shot this on the drive back. I’m so close to graduating. I can taste it.

The Daily Show

April 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Humor, Journalism, Photos

Today, I did this: Several J-school friends and I went to a taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Strictly no cameras in the studio so an awning shot will have to suffice. The man is really good at his job. He did the whole show in one take. It must have been an […]

Blizzard hits 109th street

February 10th, 2010 · Comments Off on Blizzard hits 109th street · Humor, Manhattan, Photos, Upper West Side

It’s snowing here in New York City. Schools are out all over the city. Even I had my classes cancelled. As a Michigander who spent four years in Burlington, Vt., I can’t say I’m overly impressed by this “blizzard.” But when a city the size of this one gets hit by a decent amount of […]

Coney Island to Times Square in 60 seconds

February 2nd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Brooklyn, Humor, Journalism, Manhattan, Multimedia

My assignment was to travel from Coney Island to Times Square, document it and produce a 60-second clip of the journey. I hadn’t been to Coney Island, so I was excited for the opportunity to see that part of the city. It’s a place that is both eerie and wholly intriguing. Now that it’s winter […]

Sniffing out the bugs

This is Cosmo. Look out bedbugs, Cosmo will find you. For my Digital Media Newsroom class, My partner Alex and I have been documenting the pest control business and how the outbreak of bedbugs in New York City have allowed them to stay afloat, and often profit, during the recession.

Every Tuesday around noon, I return home to grab a meal and retreat into my thoughts before returning to class. It also happens that at noon the children of PS 135 descend on the playground outside my window. I never get the retreat I’m hoping for. From my perch at my kitchen table, my window […]

My buddy Fred Dreier reached out to me after hooking up with Competitor Magazine offering for us to film the ING New York City Marathon for them. It was a long day, but it was really incredible seeing 40,000 runners and what felt like all of New York cheering them on. I handled the filming, […]
