Through my good friend Harrison Brunswick I teamed up with Media Ventures Group to document a marketing campaign for the VFW. In honor of Veteran’s Day, MVG produced a series of PSA spots and arranged to show them on the screens in Times Square.
On Veteran’s Day, I shot photos and video of the spots playing in Times Square, as well as on-the-spot interviews with US citizens offering their support to veterans and the VFW. The video will be used for internal purposes and the photos will be featured by MVG and the VFW.

Ben Johnson and Alex Waxman of Pre War
I had a chance to shoot some footage of upcoming Brooklyn rock band Pre War last Saturday at the Cake Shop in Manhattan. I filmed with my Panasonic GH1 and a couple of rented Canon lenses, and I’m pretty excited to see how the edit comes out. I’m waiting to get an audio recording from Ben – the GH1′s onboard audio was no good.

Read an interview with Pre War, follow them on Twitter, and check out a few more stills on my Tumblr.

Pictured: Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger at Observation Post Restrepo
Through my internship at Goldcrest Post Production, I was hired as a production assistant for several shoots with Sebastian Junger, the famous author, journalist and director of the Oscar-nominated documentary Restrepo. The project I worked on is a documentary telling the story of Tim Hetherington, an award-winning war photographer who was killed in action in Libya.
In association with Goldcrest Films I also am currently working as a production assistant on two prospective projects: a reality TV series set in New York City, and a documentary about the inmate theater program at Sing Sing, a New York maximum security prison.
Goldcrest Post is a film company with offices in New York, Los Angeles and London, specializing in post production, color correction and sound mixing for features, independent films and documentaries.
As an intern for the post production department of Goldcrest, I ensured a comfortable and productive office environment for the company’s employees, as well as for clients renting out office space in the building. My duties ranged from purchase and delivery runs to front-desk reception, managing petty cash and intern scheduling and assisting in client services.
Due to my consistent and dedicated work as an intern, I was asked to assist in several production projects in association with Goldcrest Films, including the Tripoli Street documentary about Tim Hetherington and a prospective reality TV show about Wall Street.
In order to more accurately and effectively represent the Student Government Association to the student body and the college community at large, I designed this official seal for our documents and affairs. The Latin words around the edge of the seal come from the Honor Code of Connecticut College: “… and thus, in manifold service, we will render our Alma Mater greater, worthier and more beautiful.” The last three adjectives are translated to Latin to reflect SGA’s commitment to making Connecticut College a better place.
The seal also incorporates graphic elements from the seal of Connecticut College, in the form of the open book icons at the lower edge. The wordmark identifies our organization directly with the institution. The quill and gavel represent the twin functions of SGA, as a legislative and a governing body.
The Greenhouse at Connecticut College
As part of the fundraising process for the new life sciences building at Connecticut College, I created this portrait of the college greenhouse, and the faculty, students and plants that make use of the facility. Originally, the goal of this video was to attract donor support for renovation of the greenhouse. I created an alternate version, shown here, for use in college publicity. I’m especially happy with the footage of the plant specimens visible in the video. The botany program at Connecticut College is truly special, and I hope I’ve done it justice.
