What do you do for a living nowadays?
I am Co-Founder (along with my husband) and Production Manager of Actuality Media, a service learning documentary production company. We coordinate study-abroad experiences for individuals interested in media and we teach them how to create short documentary films about nonprofit organizations, social entrepreneurs and other change makers around the world. Within the organization I am responsible for overseeing all aspects of our production process (research, prep, shooting and editing), instructing the students while on location, and developing current and new programs. I am also about to undertake a speaking and screening tour, traveling to University campuses in the US and Europe and talking to media students about the importance of telling stories that matter. Actuality Media is a for-profit LLC based in the USA, that was recently certified as a Benefit Corporation. All our media is available here.
