N.C. State Diversity Symposium
I was one of only three students selected from my class to present a diversity research project at the annual Parks, Recreation and Tourism Diversity Symposium on campus.

I presented the project to several department faculty members and special guests.
Photography on hitRECord
A photo I took of my clarinet was used in a video from hitRECord, which is an open collaborative production company founded by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The idea behind hitRECord is for artists to contribute their works to various collaborations. Those works, in turn, are used to create short films, songs, music videos and more. The production company recently launched its “hitRECord On TV” series which features projects such as these as well as chats and live performances. My photo was featured in a request video for a collaboration.
