My name is Naomi Rodriguez-Finer and I have started my own video production company with Kristen Ward-Chalk ’16. Our mission is to create quality films, embodying truth, inclusivity and tact. We are already building up our portfolio, and have started to reach out to faculty for advice. I would like to know if any alumni have advice for a) juggling involvement with a start-up with pursuing a degree and b) how to build a reputation outside of the Brandeis community. As MLK Scholars, we are very passionate about this endeavor and appreciate any advice/recommendations.
December 2013 Grad in Linguistics and Anthropology with a minor in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. Looking for full time opportunities or advice in the museum, education, archaeology, non-profit, and government sectors. I have completed archaeology field school, interned at a museum, and am currently a Hebrew school teacher, an annotator/adjudicator for the Spatiotemporal Annotation Project, and a teaching assistant for Introduction to Linguistics. I am interested in networking with Brandeis alumni involved in any of these fields and learning about possible career paths. Thank you in advance and I look forward to speaking with you!
