Research + Interactive, digital media Content Development + Editing/Writing/Blogging + Curation: Photo/Audio/Video + WordPress Blogging 

-Photographic Research/Visual Anthropology and Audio/Video Research include: multi-format research, procuring content, gaining permissions and/or licensing, and purchase of curated content (if budgets allow).



-Embedded Video

-Embedded Timelines (specifically, Knight Lab JS3 Timeline, a WordPress plug-in that accommodates embedded video and static photographic imagery in a chrono timeline)

-Design/Layout/Navigation/Art direction which includes text/image/audio/video pacing (important for embedded videos and audio/visual narratives with text)

-Troubleshooting: both Tech and Content

-Twitter for Academics: Researching, Creating and Maintaining/Monitoring effective hashtags 

-Well versed in The CUNY Academic Commons [setting up URL’s, customizing blogs, etc.]

-Additional: Italian Language fluency; strong working knowledge of French

To better illustrate my skill set, here’s an example of the kind of project I love to do and be a part of, which combines my BA in Renaissance Studies with my first MA in Media Studies and my work as a digital media producer/editor: 

The Digital Aura: Selfie & Renaissance Gaze Shift an interactive paper by Carolyn A. McDonough, April 2014

[please note: This is an academic piece from my private venture blog,, which chronicles the  unique adventures I have in culture/art/media and was borne from a scholarship I received from the Museum of Modern Art to take the online course CATALYSTS: Artists Creating with Sound, Video and Time. Vimeo will advance the embedded video to additional videos from my blog, some of which are performing arts-related in voice and acting, which is another aspect of my professional life.]

Another example is my recent/current work that I developed in the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate Program, which is also my research at the New Media Lab and my Independent Study project toward the ITP certificate:
