Marcin Szczepanski - College of Engineering at University of Michigan
I am a multimedia director and senior producer at the University of Michigan.
In my position as a multimedia director, I manage a team of video producers and photographers at the Communications and Marketing office of the College of Engineering.
As a senior producer, I use multimedia tools such as video, photography, text and audio to enhance the University’s reputation and to document socio-economic issues of inequality, human rights, cultural identity and international development.
I came to communications from journalism. Most recently, I was a video producer and photojournalist at the Detroit Free Press.
My freelance work has appeared in The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Slate.com, AARP Bulletin, Polityka, Przekrój and other American and European publications. I’ve photographed and filmed stories in over 20 countries.
Among my video and photography recognitions are four Emmy Awards (Michigan Region), a Gold CASE Award for Best Video and the title of the National Press Photographers Association’s Photographer of the Year in Michigan.
I was born in Poland. I moved to the USA in 2000 to finish my studies here. I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan with my amazing wife Sarah and our two daughters Olivia and Tula.
