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. 


Capitol Hill Seattle Blog

I freelance for the local news resource for Capitol Hill, Seattle. It covers one of the most vibrant and changing neighborhoods in the city, where I have written about enterprise, profiled notable residents, covered the rich art scene and explored the changing nature of a passionate area. 

Canna Ventures

I ran the blog at a marketing firm specializing in attracting new marijuana businesses in the face of Washington's legalization. I covered the changing business landscape and aspects of the burgeoning economic force that brands could use in their advertising pursuits. 

The Issaquah Press

I worked as the government and breaking news reporter, where I covered the swiftly growing city of Issaquah. With a population tripling over the past 15 years, I wrote about their growing pains and triumphs as a small city grew up.
