I’ve wanted to be a writer since elementary school, when I created a newspaper for my second-grade class by hand. The lead story? A jealousy-fueled travel piece about my friend Ann’s trip to Disney World.
My professional path has zig-zagged a bit through the marketing and journalism spaces, but the constant has been creating excellent content that has served the audience. To my complete surprise, I began my career as a business journalist focused on diversity issues. I later joined the Digg team to help promote the democratization of news. Then I moved to an exciting start-up company aiming to revolutionize the way people travel, working on content and social media, before returning to news as an editor for WaPo Labs (later Trove), part of The Washington Post Co. After embracing my intense TV fandom as SideReel‘s lead editor, I’m managing content at Springboard.
