Hi! I’m Kelsey Skonberg, multimedia producer and mixed-media artist. I’m passionate about providing outreach services to teams who have a story to tell.
I have six years of digital media experience in museum exhibit production, video editing, videography, photography, and podcast production.
I worked on projects that highlighted climate change, research, ecology, Alaska life, Arctic issues, and cross-cultural collaboration.
From 2013 to 2018, when I worked with university gear, the university retained the copyright to my work. I’ve provided links to examples. I’m also published as Kelsey Gobroski.
- Completed video editing/videography for culturally relevant climate change videos for the Geophysical Institute and K12 Outreach in partnership with the Bering Strait School District. Wove together video from several contributors.
- Completed three years of audio editing, writing, and interviewing for an NSF-funded climate change podcast.
