An Inside Look At Barcadia’s New Menu

This is an article I wrote for Spoon LSU. Barcadia invited some members of the Spoon team to try their new menu items. I wrote an article on the items we tried, based off of our opinion of the food. It was great working with Barcadia’s team to make this happen. Spoon LSU loves teaming up with local businesses, especially when the food is as dank as Barcadia’s.

FMA 2001 Video Projects

Short film

For Intro to film, FMA 2001, we had to make 2 films. For the first, it was to be a short film. The theme of the film was “miscommunication.” Everything we did in production and every question we had while filming, we asked ourselves how we could effectively portray this theme.

Two students in the same class were meeting up to study for an upcoming test. The boy in the film came prepared to study, while the girl thought of the meeting as a “study date.” She brought no paper, textbook, or backpack to the coffee shop to study with. Eventually, the girl finds out that this isn’t the date she was expecting and the boy has other plans.

We wanted to portray their feelings without showing their faces and facial expressions. This was quite a challenge. I edited the video together and worked as a PA, writer, and did a little directing on set.

 This is their awkward experience.

I wish we would have got different shots, had more time to rehearse scenes, and had used more equipment, like mics.


Internet dating, especially sites like Tinder and Bumble is huge among millennials. We wanted to sit down with students and ask them questions about the site and personal experiences. We interviewed any willing participant we knew.

The Right Swipe explored questions like What do you gain from using Tinder? Do you take internet dating seriously? Is internet dating a legitimate way to meet someone? Would you rely on internet dating to find someone?

I edited the entire project in one day in about 8-9 hours using Adobe PremierePro CC.

Charleston Photo Essay

This is another project I created for MC 2015, Visual Communication. I took these photos on my iPhone 6 while visiting Charleston. I used Adobe InDesign and Photoshop to create my project. We were told to create a photo essay using 5 pictures and some 50 characters of text. The essay could cover anything.

Being someone interested in travel and food, I decided to use photographs I took on a previous trip to Charleston. I fell in love with the southern city and decided to use Charleston for the class’ final project.

Manship Education Flier

This was a project for MC  2015, Visual Communication. This was one of my first times using Adobe. The purpose of this project was to create a new flier for the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication that effective translated the “1, 2, 3’s of a Manship Education.”

Manship Education Flier

I created this flyer using Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop.

I wish I had added more texture to the background, instead of plain white.
