About JS

Hiking Max Patch

I am a seniorĀ multimedia storyteller forĀ The Chronicle of Higher Education. I am an audiovisual specialist who conceptualizes compelling visual stories, shoots and edits video, images and audio. I’m experienced in many roles from project manager to supervisor to teacher. I helped establish standards and workflows for Bloomberg Government and integrated HDSLR video into the Sunday morning TV news show, Capitol Gains. I’ve overseen major photography projects for USA TODAY, including logistics for two winter Olympics. There are a lot of great stories out there and many exciting ways to engage audiences using emerging technology. For a more detailed biography see my resume. I can be reached at jschmalz@mac.com

When I am not in the office, I try to get out on a trail or go exploring in my kayak. I am fascinated by birds and all things nature. I grew-up in New England, live in northern Virginia and count southern Maine as a second home. The images on this site are part play, part work.
