Founded in 1922, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs is the midwest's foremost political think tank. In fulfilling their goal of "bringing the world to Chicago, and Chicago's ideas to the world," they host conversations with diplomats, economists, and worldwide academic leaders.

Roger Thurow is The Council's Senior Fellow on Global Agriculture and Food Policy. Previously an international correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, he has devoted his life towards ending hunger on a global scale, and is the author of Enough and The Last Hunger Season.

I was called on to help with Roger's latest endeavor: a new blog, Outrage and Inspire, which "brings attention to global hunger, poverty, and malnutrition through powerful storytelling." The Council reached out to me to help design and build a dynamic, easily-updatable blog for Roger as he reports on his experiences both at home and abroad. It is responsively designed for both mobile and desktop displays. Check it out!

Nestled in the rolling hills of southeast Wisconsin, Camp Anokijig has over 350 acres around idyllic Little Elkhart Lake. This project was all about capturing that beauty in a modern website and an evocative video.

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.
