My research areas of interest include service learning in the communication studies curriculum and digital media production with emphasis on aesthetic impact. Employing service learning pedagogy in the communication studies curriculum provides for unique opportunities for learning, becoming civically engaged, and opportunities for communication work product to impact and inform wider audiences. I have studied, researched, and presented a paper on the impact of the Steadicam aesthetic in film storytelling and more recently have been researching and studying the use and impact of drone cinematography in television and film production.
