Responsible for leading technical team and developing a content strategy for a mobile-first online collecting, exhibition, and mapping website that explores the 1926 Firestone expedition in Liberia through multiple perspectives. I led the collaboration with partners at University of Wisconsin, Indiana University, and Liberian Center for National Documents and Records Agency.

A Liberian Journey offers a look into the lives and landscapes transformed by the arrival of Firestone Plantations Company in Liberia.  Through exhibits, featuring photographs, films, oral histories, and documents, an interactive map, and an archive filled with materials from a 1926 Harvard expedition, visitors are invited to interact with, reflect upon, and share their own stories about the people and places affected by this historic moment of change in Liberia.
