About Lindsay Simpson

Lindsay is a recent CSU graduate who double-majored in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology and Technical Journalism.  She worked as an undergraduate intern with Joana Roque de Pinho (first cohort).  Her main role in the project was to document in video all the steps of Joana's Photovoice project with Maasai volunteers in southern Kenya.  Once stateside, she collaborated with Joana to write the framework for a short documentary on the project, which she then edited.  Lindsay also assisted with training project participants in photography, documentary advertising and presenting the project at the 2009 CCC "Bridging the Gap" conference. The collaboration culminated in the creation of the documentary film "Through our Eyes: a Maasai Photographic Journey", currently being submitted to film festivals. Lindsay's footage has also been used as part of the Maasai Photovoice photo exhibits in the CSU Morgan Library and at Valhall Arts in Fort Collins.
