I spent the summer of 2016 as an editorial intern at JazzTimes, where I wrote and maintained the magazine’s daily jazz blog. I also had the opportunity to attend the legendary Newport Jazz Festival as a credentialed media member where, as a videographer, I was able to interview dozens of artists.  

My time at Newport is briefly chronicled here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3.

The interviews are on YouTube here and below:
