These are a few portfolio pieces on which I have worked, showcasing various writing, design and videography skills.

1. CD Design – “Thomas Dressler Plays the Paul Fritts Organ, Princeton  Theological Seminary”
This is the project of which I am most proud. I did the graphic design, typesetting and liner notes for Pennsylvania organist Thomas Dressler‘s new CD, recorded on the Paul Fritts pipe organ at Princeton Theological Seminary.

2. Technical Writing – Satellite Infographic
This was a fun project. Classmate Chris Blankenship and I designed an attractive, eye-catching 11×17 poster/infographic about satellites, their purpose and history. Page layout was accomplished using Adobe InDesign CS3; images were cut out and processed for print using PhotoShop CS3. Illustrator CS3 was used to create a resolution-independent vector trace of the orbital information figure. Various weights of Linotype Futura CE were used to present a consistent typographical look throughout.

3. JAMM-275 Music Video – “Thank God” (Hank Williams)
This is a song that has a great message, so I decided to use it for my music video project in JAMM-275. My church’s campus minister played the preacher, and dorm mate Leo Morales played the part of the wayward man.

4. Technical Writing – Student Grant Proposal
This grant proposal (University of Idaho Student Grant Program) was for an ambitious TV documentary that would showcase various historic railroads in North Idaho, including the awe-inspiring Lapwai Canyon trestles of the Camas Prairie Railroad and the Spokane & Inland Empire Railway’s electric trolley line that ran to Moscow and to Coeur d’Alene. I did not submit this proposal, as I graduate in May 2013 and will no longer be a student when grants are awarded. The Investigator Information and Budget forms were filled out using Adobe Acrobat Pro 8, and the Narrative/Additional Information sections were designed in InDesign CS3. The resulting files were combined and compressed in Acrobat.
