I am an award-winning visual journalist with 18 years of experience.
Currently, I am the Director for Emerging News Products at The Washington Post.
The Emerging News Products team is a 30-person group made up of editors, designers and producers. The team has launched The Post’s highly visual and tightly curated national product suite of apps which includes a newsletter and an Apple Watch presence. The team also runs many of The Post’s high-profile distributed platform initiatives, including Apple News, Snapchat Discover and The Lily.
The Team operates on an editorial philosophy and design sensibility that takes advantage of the small screen for mobile-first storytelling. We are consistently in the innovations mindset, knowing that once something is launched, it’s on to figuring out what the next big thing will be.
