Media Designer, Sr.

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

I have a great affinity for self-guided learning, cinematography, audio recording, and graphic design. My work as a Media Designer encompasses all of these things on a daily basis. The Academic Innovation portfolio is becoming vast, and everyone is working on wildly different projects—I learn something new every day from my colleagues.

Current Roles/Previous Experience

I work with instructors and design teams to develop media content that enriches digital learning initiatives. I produce video, audio, and graphics to share knowledge with global audiences.

Before working in the Office of Academic Innovation, I supported engaged learning activities at the U-M Duderstadt Center, and designed a range of multimedia work highlighting exemplary teaching styles in non-traditional classrooms. During that time, I operated cameras for theater productions, recorded complex musical performances, and maintained world-class recording studios. I also explored new digital publication platforms, designed print media, developed websites, and managed the Duderstadt Center Design Labs. Prior to working at the Duderstadt Center, I offered portable lecture capture solutions in classrooms across U-M’s campus.
