New York Harriers – Instagram

I have written every post for the Harriers for over a year. This involves collecting, editing, and often taking the photos. I also produce and curate their “Meet the Harriers” Q&A series.

Some sample posts below.

The Harriers, established in 1988, is one of NYC’s most competitive running clubs. I am currently the club’s Vice President, contribute writing and editing of their weekly newsletter, and own a ridiculously large amount of clothing with their logo.

Pitch Decks

I wrote and designed many television pitch decks for a NYC production company specializing in unscripted television.

I created the covers and internal graphics using stock images and Photoshop. (I am not a professional graphic designer, but I have been using Photoshop since 2005 and know enough to slide by.)

Covers and one sample page from select decks are below.

I have also written well over 100 comedy sketches and over 20 late night packets. Highly considering linking to the late night packets, only because I’m not sure anyone has ever done that before. Might be fun.
