Early in my scholastic career I made the mistake of creating separate blogs for various classes which asked students to create blogs. In fear of losing that work, here are links to those blogs.
- In the Spring of 2012 I took “Creating History In New Media,” which we at Mason call “Clio Two.” My blog for that course can be found here.
- In the Fall of 2009 I took my very first history course as a Master’s student for Paula Petrik’s “Rise of the American Corporation.” My blog for that course can be found here.
Here, are links to past projects completed at various stages of my academic career.
- In the Fall of 2010 I took the digital mapping course “History and Cartography.” Our final project was to create work which could be placed into a geography encyclopedia. My post detailed the evolution of the elite home Tudor Place and its surrounding Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Georgetown. My final project for that course can be found here.
- A fun mid-semester project for my directed readings course in “Public History and History Education” in the Fall of 2013 was to create a historically based “choose your own ending” game using the site Inkle. That work can be found here.
- In the Fall of 2012 I took the directed readings course “Digital Public History.” My final project for that course can be found here.
In my professional career I have also had the opportunity to work on several great digital history projects.
- Through my time working as a member of the Public Projects Team at GMU’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) I created content, including biographies, historiographies, and articles on persons and places of renown, for the Histories of the National Mall project, a mobile based website cataloging important and fascinating events at the National Mall and Memorial Parks. The site acts as a digital tour guide for visitors.
- As a Ranger and Interpretive Media Specialist with the National Park Service’s Civil War Sesquicentennial Team, I helped to create and maintain Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, and YouTube accounts for Manassas National Battlefield Park, Shiloh National Military Park, Antietam National Battlefield, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Vicksburg National Military Park, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, and Gettysburg National Military Park. I also helped to write, designs, and edit the Maryland Campaign website.
I hope that moving forward I can be better about keeping all of my creative content linked and updated.
