I work as a News Desk Editor for TIME’s digital side. I work with reporters, producers, the video team and the social team to assign, edit and publish the most important and breaking news for our worldwide audience. During most of my shifts, I lead the News Desk and am responsible for all editorial decisions made on digital coverage. Additionally, on most shifts, I am responsible for crafting newsletters, publishing Apple alerts and managing TIME’s social media. I also write breaking news and events as needed.
I helped lead a team of 14 reporters to find the timeliest, most shareable news for our 46 million readers. I edited, assigned, scheduled and assisted in managing the largest vertical at Mashable. I also work with MashReads, and have co-hosted a weekly podcast with thousands of listeners for over 100 episodes. I ran the internship program, responsible for hiring, training, and managing over 30 young writers. Additionally, I co-produced and co-hosted a number of editorial and entertainment videos dealing with every topic from Game of Thrones to science.
