I help newsrooms harness technology, engage with readers, and tell compelling stories. 

As The Washington Post's director of newsroom product, I lead teams that create and manage digital tools for journalists. (See my recent projects.)

In my nearly 15 years at The Post, I helped develop the Express newspaper as its deputy editor, created experimental news sites and mobile apps as managing editor of WaPo Labs, co-founded The Coral Project open-source digital-engagement collaborative, and launched more than a dozen interactive tools for the Post 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, a novice photographer (a few shots from my Instagram are below), and a middling guitar player.
