Get Your Fashion Fix on Route 66

Project Meta Cameras: Panasonic HMC-150 (x3) Editor: Final Cut 7 Every other fall, the merchandising program at the NAU School of Communication produces a fashion show featuring local designers alongside student designers.

Stories from InsideNAU

This semester, I took a part-time job as a reporter for InsideNAU, a PR/news program that focuses specifically on NAU happenings and events. I produced five packages for the show throughout the semester, doing the writing, editing, and some shooting. I enjoyed doing all of these stories; Below are four of the packages, from most […]

Things I’m Doing

Spreading myself too thin. But that’s OK, because I take pride and joy in all of the work I do. Sometimes, I feel like I’m not doing enough work, to which my close friends call me insane for thinking. Here’s what I’ve been doing with my time aside from blogging here. (Note: I normally don’t […]

NAU Donates $30K to Spike Lee’s Checking Account

Each interview is conducted by a student learning how to interview, and the studio is run by students learning how to run a studio. Recipe for disaster? Not quite.

Ass Kicking

I’m writing this from atop a mound of dirt on the side of the I-215 beltway overlooking the Las Vegas valley, brightly lit as always, and accompanied by a nearly full moon. I’m listening to BT’s This Binary Universe, and remembering the tranquil swim I took at dusk under a purple and orange sky. Tonight […]

Ellen Spiro at NAU – Review
