Additional Information: In 2014, with partners VII Photo and Talking Eyes Media, he founded Newest Americans, a multimedia art and documentary project that chronicles the immigrant experience from the vantage point of the most diverse national university in the United States. Newest Americans is a collaborative multimedia laboratory in which professional journalists, artists and media-makers work alongside faculty and students to document local immigrant stories with a global reach. Newest Americans produces a multimedia digital magazine, gallery and museum exhibits, and curriculum from the media it produces. Project media has been screened at film and photography festivals, used in high school and college classrooms, and featured in national print and online publications including National Geographic, The Atlantic, Mother Jones and The New York Times.
