This summer, I was lucky to get the News21 fellowship at Columbia. I worked with 10 of my peers under a great crew of editors.

We produced several multimedia packages on Aging in America. It was a great experience that even afforded me the opportunity to travel to Montana to shoot some video.

Yesterday, the site went live. You can view it here.

The fellowship was a great opportunity, and several of the pieces I produced were picked up by major media outlets.

This was the piece I shot in Montana with Bob and Sue Cushman, a lovely couple who live independently in Condon, Montana. It was part of a larger series of mini-documentaries we produced that examined the different ways elderly people live in America. The series was picked up by The New York Times and can be viewed here.

This was a piece I edited from footage we collected from interviews with patients with dementia. It was picked up by the Washington Post and can be viewed here.

I also assisted on several other packages, including a print piece on widowhood and loss, a multimedia package on the world’s oldest man and a cartoon about the future of universal design in an aging society.
