As a video journalist and producer I write, producer, film and edit news stories and digital content. This includes working with journalists on existing stories and pitching my own concepts. I have a science background so have done a lot of stories at NASA and JPL, and even wrote some print content to go along with my video. One of these stories even ended up on the front page of the print paper.
