A few years ago, I left my job as the director of an art gallery to pursue a career as a journalist. I bought a one-way ticket to Paris to become a foreign correspondent, arriving shortly after the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

But I soon realized that in order to tell the stories I was interested in, I would need a proper education on journalistic principles and ethics, and the changing media landscape.

I was honored to be admitted to the University of Southern California as an Annenberg Fellow in the master's of science in journalism program.

At USC, I produced a weekly newsmagazine show called The Current. Each episode was centered around a different theme, like politics, international affairs, diversity and technology.

In addition to The Current, I produced video stories for traditional broadcast news, social media platforms like Facebook video, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and even virtual reality.

I created a series of Instagram videos to provide a “quick catch-up” for ongoing news stories. For example, I made an animated “delegates scoreboard” for the primary races that quickly visualized candidates’ standings in the hunt for delegates using a bar graph and pie charts. The video gained more views than any other on Annenberg Media’s Instagram account – about five times the average.

I also reported stories for text, digital and audio on local and international issues, technology, the environment, race relations and business.

For my semester-long capstone project, I examined the environmental and regulatory ripples stemming from the methane leak at the Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Storage Facility in Los Angeles. You can see the full story here.

After earning my master's, I accepted a digital fellowship at ABC News in New York, where I write stories for a national audience and produce live video for distribution on ABCNews.com and social media.
