Desert Lens is a science journalism project out of the University of Arizona School of Journalism’s Science Journalism program. The project is supervised by Prof. Carol Schwalbe, a retired print editor with National Geographic Magazine and the head of the science journalism program, and John de Dios, a freelance video producer for National Geographic News. The story compiles some of the best multimedia and video projects in the Fall 2014 science journalism class.
Aside from anchoring the program, I also served as managing editor for the class and the printed magazine; and also served as the executive producer for the multimedia show. As the executive producer, I worked closely with de Dios in putting the program together; editing the stories together, selecting the stories and putting the show together. This was then reviewed by Schwalbe who served as the News Director for the project.
