In late October 2013, I accepted a job with Grand Valley State University and relocated to Grand Rapids, MI. In my new position at the Grand Valley State University Simulation Center, I assisted with the management of all the audiovisual operations for the GVSU Simulation Center at the Cook-Devos Center for Health Sciences. I collaborated with the creation, production, and delivery of online lectures and other multi-media content for health professions students and faculty so they can stream events and watch recorded media online. I managed video operations in the Arcadia simulation database and provide technical support for the simulation labs when needed. I also created videos such as the one below to help promote the GVSU Simulation Center and other Office of the Vice Provost of Health programs. The video below was showed at the MIPERC conference on September 19, 2014 discussing the advantages of Interprofessional educational programs in the health care field.

The Summer Film Project was founded in 1995 by Grand Valley State University. It brings students, faculty and industry professionals together on the production of a film. The preproduction and filming takes place in the summer session. The fall semester is devoted to postproduction where students complete the film and prepare for its premiere at a local movie theatre and enter it into film festivals across the country. I worked on two of Grand Valley’s summer films The Darkroom and Horizontal Accidents. You are now able view these two films below.
