So about spectrum...

I had the awesome opportunity of working with Hayley Tsukayama on an awesome little segment called "Post Buzz." Normally, one of our other fantastic producers works on this regular segment, but due to workflow circumstances I got to take the reigns on this week's segement, which focused on spectrum policy.

Take a look:

The Royal Baby? Oh yeah. Got it.

Friday side note. I made this really fun video about the royal baby... who isn't even born yet. Ahead of the game? I think yes. :)

New York, New York

Oh the Big Apple. The concrete jungle where dreams are made of... and where Sandi Moynihan's go crazy with their cameras.

I opted for a black and white theme to emphasize the urban landscape.

Here are some of my best shots from my 4th of July weekend in New York:

#Egypt: Using social media to record the images of history

Happy July my lovely readers! So let's jump right into it, shall we?

This past weekend I had the chance to work on one of the coolest videos I've had the privilege of editing since I started my time at the Post. It's a piece showcasing and exploring Egypt from June 29, 2013 to July 5, 2013 via the lens of video shared over social media outlets like Vine and Instagram. Now, not only was this the first dual screen video I produced, but it was also the first time I worked with people only using social media as a means of communication-- not to mention the fact that all of the people I worked with were an ocean away. Pretty cool, eh?

Here's the video I made:

Now, I know its not perfect... but it makes you stop, pause, and look at Egypt's political and social situation in a different light that breaks away from the hard news angle, which is what I was aiming for. In retrospect, I think I should have planned a bit better in terms of balancing the sides of the story, but honestly, the idea was simply to show that this political situation is being discussed, shared, and recorded in real time in a way that not even Arab Spring can compare to.

And that is a story worth telling.
