Tim is currently a junior at Middlebury College. He is a declared Sociology major, and is considering adding a Japanese minor. He began working as a Digital Media Intern in the summer of 2018. Tim is hoping that his experience working in the Digital Media Lab will provide him with skills working in a variety of different programs and mediums, which could then be applied to other projects that involve digital media storytelling. In high school, he used tools such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to work as the lead designer for his school’s yearbook. He intends to expand his knowledge on these tools and use them in service of his passions, advocating for political issues and labor rights.
During the summer of 2018, one of the projects Tim will be working on will center around creating a website for professors at Middlebury. This website will store numerous videos created by faculty that provide advice on issues such as how to approach difficult topics in the classroom and how to foster open dialogue among students. The goal is to create a resource available to all of Middlebury’s faculty whenever they find themselves confronted with unexpected obstacles in their instruction.
