In December of 2011 I participated in Agnes Scott College's Global Connections - Literary Ireland trip. Agnes Scott faculty led a group of students on a travel seminar to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to visit literary landscapes and many of the island's most beautiful and distinctive sites.
In addition to completing course work prior to our departure I decided to take on a personal project and thus "Chronicles of a Brooklyn Girl" was born. I initially wanted to practice my photojournalism and create an interactive recap of my journey for my family and friends at home. In addition to taking pictures and writing essays, I decided to record lots of video footage. It wasn't until one day when I was bored on a bus ride that I actually began to build what you see as the opening sequence. Intrigued by what I had begun I instantly went to work. I became obsessed with precision, transitions and reformatting footage to create a learning experience for my viewers. I hope that you enjoy the series and continue to journey with me on my road to become a modern day "story teller."
