Big Canyon, Little Camera

I’m a hiker, so I usually don’t like carrying too much gear. On a recent trip to the Grand Canyon, I opted to document the trip using only my iPhone.

Our Hands

I’m obsessed with how good design and multimedia can not only celebrate communities, but also cultivate them. I began exploring how to do this in high school and during my undergraduate years. My alma mater became my sandbox, and I began designing media that would showcase the robust community while also inviting others to join.

The following video is a short film I made about hands and how they build community.

I am ___. I am W&M.

My role as Student Body President at William & Mary afforded me many opportunities to design and implement campaigns for the larger campus community.

I wanted to create a tactile representation of the campus community that illustrated both its diversity and unity. I asked students, faculty, and staff to fill in the blank to “I am ____, I am W&M”. I received over 11,500 words, 5,000 of which were unique words or phrases. Every submission was incorporated into the following design in an attempt to visualize all that comes together to create William & Mary. The initiative was extremely well-received by the community, as over 1,500 shirts with the collective design were sold that year.

I put the submissions into an interactive word cloud, allowing viewers to explore and make discoveries about the campus community.
