As The Washington Post's director of newsroom product, I lead teams that create and manage major areas of coverage for readers and digital tools for journalists. (See my recent projects.)
Highlights from my 16 years at The Post:
Founding director of The Post’s experimental newsroom product department.
Led digital strategy and production for the 2018 midterm elections.
Co-founded the Coral Project, a $3.9 million partnership with The New York Times and Mozilla that created open-source commenting software.
Led The Post’s push for greater transparency to enhance reader trust.
Created more than a dozen interactive tools for the Post newsroom.
Hired an international team of editors and led the editorial development of personalized news sites Trove and Washington Post Social Reader.
Helped develop the Express newspaper as its deputy editor.
Helped guide The Post’s evolution to a digital-first newsroom.
I'm an avid traveler and amateur photographer. A few shots from my Instagram are below.
