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 15 years at The Post:

  • 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 experimental 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.

Outside my work with The Post, I serve as a Coral Project adviser and I give trainings to journalists in developing countries as part of the World Association of Newspapers' media development brain trust.

I'm an avid traveler and amateur photographer. A few shots from my Instagram are below.
