Multimedia Editor
I joined The World in 2010 to establish the newly created web editor position. Since then, I've transitioned to become our multimedia editor where I'm responsible for the editorial direction of The World’s daily online presence along with editing all the interactive, video, photos, infographics etc — and helping develop our overall strategic vision on the net. Does "multimedia" really cover all that?! We'll see.
 
Back in graduate school I developed a site called Exploring Conversations. It was an experiment in multimedia digital journalism exploring of the language of music (I've archived the audio pieces on SoundCloud here). I've also taught graduate and undergraduate students in social media and digital news reporting at Michigan State University.
 
Additionally, I was a regular contributor to PBS MediaShift where I wrote about the evolving intersection of politics and technology.
 
From 2002-2010 I hosted The Nonchalant Café, a radio newsmagazine at WIDR FM in Kalamazoo, MI. I've also worked as a news director in commercial radio and regularly reported for United Press International covering defense and emerging security threats.
 
I hold an MA in journalism from Michigan State University.
 
In my spare time I find any way that I can to sneak in a reference to craft beer from my home state of Michigan, in particular, my favorite, Two Hearted Ale.
