My reporting has appeared on WNYC.org, Huffington Post, Gannet Journal News, Norwood News, Open Media Boston, PBS.org, WGBHLab.org, WORLDCOMPASS.org and the Knight Foundation News Blog. I also authored Crowdsourcing: A Field Guide from WNYC .
As a reporter and multimedia producer, I look for projects where I can help increase interaction with the public, especially with social media tools and with crowd-powered reporting. I bring a traditional set of journalistic skills and knowledge of new ways to report, share and distribute stories online. Obtaining a Masters in Interactive Journalism is a recent career change for me, so I’m comfortable in a shifting news landscape, but I also bring a mature view to the work I do. I believe we are past the point of established organizations being the only source for news, yet they remain go-to centers of information right now. By using hybrid reporting–working with the people on the street who are recording and bearing witness to events–we can create fuller, richer news coverage.
