  • Camp Anokijig - Catch the Spirit

For more than 90 years, Camp Anokijig has been serving youth and building memories to last a lifetime. Nestled in the rolling hills of southeast Wisconsin, Anokijig has over 350 beautiful acres around idyllic Little Elkhart Lake. Between horseback riding, fire-building, fishing, boating, and more, a stay at Anokijig has everything you could want in a youth camp.

As you might expect of a camp rooted deeply in tradition, change doesn't always come quickly. When I took on the task of redesigning the website, the existing design had been in place since the early 2000s. The task at hand: create a modern website that still had the rustic feel of a walk through the woods. Nothing too corporate, nothing too sterile, but still easy to navigate. The result: A brand-new, responsively designed, easy-to-edit website built on the Drupal content management system. If you've been there, you know that Camp Anokijig is a beautiful place with an incredible spirit. Now, even if you haven't, you can get a taste of what it's like at home.anokijig.com.

On top of building the website, I also created some new content to fill its pages. I was privileged enough to spend a week at Camp with my video equipment, living the life of a camper—singing songs, going on boat races, and living a few wonderful days in the great outdoors. The result was a video that (I think) captures pretty well what it's like to be at Camp Anokijig and catch the spirit. Click here to check it out!

Working with a designer from a totally different medium was a wonderful experience. Although we sometimes spoke in what seemed like different languages, our sensibilities almost always brought us to the same conclusions.

The Chicago Improv Festival is the longest running and largest improv festival in the world. I put together this video to showcase the organization’s history and highlight the evolution of their programs.

Getting your picture taken professionally can be stressful, but the right photographer can make all the difference. I aim to make my subjects as comfortable as possible for a relaxed and enjoyable shoot—for everyone.

For a fledgling musician, getting your name out can be more difficult than just writing a great song. With YouTube as one of the largest modern sources for music discovery, having video is essential.

Media work runs in the family. This project for Charlie Meyerson, Chicago news veteran, involved a complete rebranding of an existing site based on the “Google Blogger” platform.
