ONE-MAN-BAND

      I spent three months analyzing Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's acts of clemency. My findings upset several attorneys and advocates, who said most of Nixon's pardons overlook a large subset of Missourians.
   I wrote, shot and edited the piece using Avid NewsCutter and iNews. I also wrote a web story of roughly 3,000 words, with interactive graphics, that goes even deeper into the story. The investigation aired on KOMU-TV on 12/21/16.

 

     After examining more than 700 pages of bus maintenance records, I found that some newer City of Columbia buses cost more to maintain than their older counterparts. This package led the 10:00 PM newscast on 05/26/16, which was during sweeps. I did all of the data work, shot the b-roll, wrote and edited the piece. 

    The USDA estimates that billions of dollars in food goes to waste while a portion of Americans go hungry. One group in Columbia aims to redirect this misuse. 

     I shot, wrote the web and TV script and edited this package. iNews and Avid were used to create the piece and it aired during KOMU-TV's 10 PM broadcast on 12/28/16.

     The Antlers can be seen at Mizzou Arena for every men’s basketball tipoff. I worked as an ESPNU Campus Connection Correspondent to learn more about the mentality of this elite fan group. The story was published on ESPNU's YouTube channel in March 2015. I researched, wrote the script, secured interviews, edited using Final Cut Pro X and shot all of the video with a Panasonic HDC-TM300 Camcorder.
