Camino de Santiago
In May and June 2019 I worked with five students and two of our professional staff to cover the BYU Spanish language majors on the Camino de Santiago. This was a student-mentored project, meaning we worked alongside the students, all of us contributing. My collaborators included: Alan Neves, an accomplished videographer and drone pilot who teaches video shooting and editing; and Melissa Gibbs, an experienced producer who supervises our daily student-produced television newscast. Melissa covered the first week, starting in Pamplona; Alan came for the last week, flying his drone west from Pamplona; I got to stay for a month. When Alan arrived I got to walk the last six days (82 miles). Our talented and hard-working students who helped produced this were: Angela Cava, Tre Harris, Natasha Ramirez, Madeleine Reber, and Danielle Wardinsky.
New York City
In Spring 2016, I directed the School of Communications inaugural New York Field Experience. Twenty students participated, completing classes in Backpack Journalism and Media History.
In Spring 2018, I helped lead a study abroad in Spain and Portugal. Ten journalism students reported on Spanish culture, BYU study abroad programs, and the Camino de Santiago.
