Visit Koptiuch's YouTube site for my mini-movies, including a digital story on South Side Story: Urban Changes in South Phoenix, several videos about the Costa Rica study abroad program I've directed there a number of times, adventures mostly in Oregon with my cousin Chef Steve, the proud moment when the unfortunately short-lived but fabulously important, independent student-run newspaper I advised at ASU's West campus @west news in 2012 won the ASU Pitchfork Award for most Outstanding Independent Undergraduate Student Organization for ALL of Arizona State University, and various other short movies that I've made.
 Number of video views as of August 23, 2017: 289,975 and counting!
