Organizer, Volunteer Coordinator, Co-Photographer
I worked as an organizer and co-photographer. This was my first time running a massive, multiday event, and so my first challenge was learning how to delegate tasks to other people so that I didn't spread myself thin.

A student run organization that serves as the home of all video games at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Consistently organized and documented over 300+ hours of casual gaming nights, competitive tournaments, and charity fundraisers for the Worcester Polyechnic Institute Community.
While improving the effiecency of the set up, organization, and take down of the events, I was always concentrated on being an energetic, kind, and welcoming host for students. Whether it be a regular or a student's first visit, I strived to make each night more exciting than the last.
"The Oral History of Video Games is a multi-year joint project of the IGDA Game Preservation SIG and the Interactive Media and Game Development program at Worcester Polytechnic Institute aimed at documenting the history of video games and the industry around them."

I was one of the video editors of the project, and also contributed to the final written report. Coming in with more experience in video editing than my partners, I was primarily responsible with teaching them how to perform tasks with the camera.
