MULTIMEDIA

Rendezvous with History (Project for a multimedia class in the science writing master’s program at The Johns Hopkins University)— I wrote and produced this audio piece, which tells the story of my sister’s quest to learn more about our grandfather, Nicholas “Bud” Neises, using genealogical research. Bud, a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division, was killed in action following a heroic jump on D-Day.

The Fast Fifty (Crain’s Chicago Business) — I researched the 50-fastest growing companies for Crain’s Chicago Business in 2010 and assisted with the production of this video.
