For 12 days in September 2019, I was embedded with John R. Brakey, elections expert and president of A.U.D.I.T.USA in Greensboro, North Carolina. I wrote a story, shot, and edited a multi-part set of videos to support the efforts towards Hand-Marked Paper Ballots, instead of a machine in between the voter & their vote.

With the combined work of computer scientists, election security experts, advocates and the NC NAACP, "Jim Crow 3.0" did not roll out, as Guilford County's Board of Elections ultimately chose to listen to the overwhelming demand for Hand-Marked Paper Ballots.

I currently work as a multimedia consultant for a joint coalition of organizations ( & .tv, the Columbus Institute of Contemporary Journalism, & A.U.D.I.T.USA) that are leading the righteous struggle to rekindle the trust in the American Democratic system of one person, one vote. 

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."  ~ Robert Heinlein
