Professional news junkie and editor infatuated with all things technological and social. I write tweets for a living.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Maryland, I have a broad and experienced skill to match my unorthodox career trajectory.
I started developing basic web design and HTML skills at a young age, eventually earning a freelance gig for the now-defunct Daily Radar, a news aggregator and portal site for the video game industry.
That stint earned me a spot at Kikizo, a U.K. media outlet that contributed syndicated content to AOL UK, covering trade shows and reviewing optical discs.
After earning my A.A. in General Studies with honors from Montgomery College in Md. in May 2013, I was offered admission into the prestigious USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
At USC, I served as executive editor at Neon Tommy, America's most widely-read daily university-based online news publication. Managing a staff over 300 contributing undergraduate and graduate students, Neon Tommy won over 14 L.A. Press Club and SPJ awards during my tenure.
Most recently, I oversaw the team responsible for audience growth and engagement, social media, search, new product initiatives and social video at Fortune Magazine.
I am now managing editor of The Tylt, the latest project from Advance Digital's in-house media incubator.
