Wanderlust: Panama

It was 2013 going on 2014 and I realized that I needed to get away and center myself before the upcoming year. Little did I know that meant I would hop on a plane to a foreign country almost 1,800 miles away.

What New York Taught Me

Life is an open book with every chapter's title weighing in its significance. I'm from Houston and while I love my city for the foundation its played in my life, there's one chapter filled with torn pages, highlights and yes, some bloodshed: New York City.

On the topic of video journalism...

During class, a professor I'm slated to shadow for a day showed his recent project about gun violence in Chicago. His work has appeared on the New York Times and other major outlets, so it was interesting to watch the documentary series from the perspective of a citizen as well as a videographer. (Ha, can I even call myself that just yet? Be sure to see my latest video projects on my "portfolio" tab).

The documentary series "Ricochet: Life in a city under siege from guns" appears after the jump:

Life in the Chi Series: Part I

Part one of the "Life in the Chi" posts have begun!

Boo- now I just sound like a bitter old lady referring to "oh, kids these days"! Enjoy!

My "MVP" Speech

A couple weeks ago, I had my farewell dinner at one of my favorite Cajun restaurants in Houston. Lafayette Cajun Restaurant has been a family favorite since I was in high school, before the owner successfully opened another location in Pearland and before the owner's teenage son became the young manager. It was only fitting my tastebuds get one more stab at dirty rice and gumbeaux.
