The GroundTruth Project: Digital Products and Project Management

The GroundTruth Project is a nonprofit media organization that is dedicated to supporting a new generation of journalists through narrative storytelling that enlightens and informs across media platforms, including digital, radio/podcast, television and documentary film. 

I worked as GroundTruth's Digital Manager through May 2016, and alongside a team at WGBH Digital, I oversaw the development and deployment of a multitude of products, including daily digital content and social, as well as large-scale projects: a site redesign and launch, the creation of a user-generated discussion platform called Voices (I also did CSS and HTML work on this responsive site), and the award-winning microsite, Foreverstan.com.

YouthVoices

YouthVoices

YouthVoices is a digital initiative between the GroundTruth Project and international non-profit RTI that seeks to tell stories of the global youth unemployment crisis as they are seen, heard and felt by young people around the world. The multimedia storytelling platform gives youth a powerful way to share their own struggles and successes related to education, work, job seeking and entrepreneurship.

I did the CSS and front-end development work on this site, as well as acted as project manager. 

Foreverstan

Along with our partners at WGBH Digital who helped out with design and development, the GroundTruth team put over a year of work into this immersive story-telling experience about America's longest war. 

Foreverstan was a multi-award-winning project that spawned a successful documentary and a podcast.

My roles included editing, production, project management, development, and social media promotion, among many other tasks. 

The GroundTruth site

The GroundTruth site

I oversaw the design, development and migration of 40-plus multimedia reporting projects into a new WordPress site for the GroundTruth Project. 

The goal was to create a place where GroundTruth could not only showcase their reporting, but also show off their emerging reporters. 

We partnered with WGBH Digital on design and development. 

This is my favorite project from GroundTruth.
