I documented pro football's return to St. Louis for the Columbia Missourian in this short video. A sell-out crowd of nearly 30,000 cheered on the BattleHawks of the XFL, creating an atmosphere that rivaled the NFL according to fans. I shot and edited this video to capture the energy in the stadium and the enthusiasm from St. Louis sports fans.
I was the Infographics Editor for the Columbia Missourian during the COVID-19 pandemic. A major part of the responsibilities of the graphics desk has been keeping Missouri readers up to date on the cases in their state. I worked with reporter and designer Ashlyn O'Hara to produce this interactive map and bar chart showing the updated case count in the state. The map has been featured prominently on the newspaper's website throughout the pandemic.

On the night of Sept. 13, 2019, stock-car driver and student Louie Lovelace flipped his car during a race. He emerged from the wreck with only minor injuries. Seven weeks later, he had built a new car and was ready to return to the track. This micro-documentary covers Louie's wreck, recovery and ultimately his return. I produced this video with Julia Hansen and videographer Hillary Tan thanks to nearly unlimited access provided by the Lovelace family.
