After standing outside in the pouring rain last night at a girls lacrosse game, I woke up to snow on the ground. On April 16.

I set up a GoPro in the front yard to capture a time lapse of the impending blizzard. What we got instead was a glorified dusting with temps in the teens. Without a specific weather story to pursue, I took the time lapse concept on the road throughout the day and put together this video.Read more "Snow Day (time lapse)"
New London poses for a ‘Big Picture’
Shot with two still cameras and two video cameras with the help of my co-worker Jenna Cho.

Moving the Nathan Hale Schoolhouse
back at work after a holiday vacation, and my first story was right out the back door. As part of a redesign of a plaza in downtown New London, a historic schoolhouse was being moved across the street. Since it was so close to home, I was able to lug out just about every piece […]Read more "Moving the Nathan Hale Schoolhouse"
