As someone who has benefitted greatly from the mentorship of many generous professionals over the course of my own career, giving back to young people remains a priority.

In addition personally mentoring college and high school students, as well as the many panels and workshops on which I speak at schools and networking events across the metro area, I designed and coordinated a group of media courses serving youth in underprivileged communities.

Media, Tech & Arts Academy

Over the course of the week-long camps, our instructors taught media literacy and allowed the children opportunity to:

  • Learn media literacy
    • lectures/discussions on media and media influence
    • film analysis and breakdown
  • Learn about different types of media production
    • hands-on film, television, audio & music production utilizing:
      • desktops, laptops, tablets, cameras, lighting. audio and DJ equipment
      • set design, makeup, wardrobe and props
    • acting workshops
    • meet and learn from working professionals in the creative arts industries
    • imagine, script, act in, and produce their own productions
