For more than 15 years, I've worked as an award-winning reporter, writer, producer, editor, artist, manager, web designer, and web content manager.

My first published book, "A Necessary Evil: Managing Employee Activity on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn ... and the Hundreds of Other Social Media Sites," which debuted June 2013, was a bestseller within the week of its release.

I'm now working in the esteemed editorial division of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), which publishes online and HR Magazine. SHRM is the world's largest association dedicated to the HR profession and has more than 275,000 members worldwide. In that role, I have become a subject matter expert on the evolution of HR technology, Social Media Strategies, and Global Human Resources. I also direct the editorial divisions social media strategy.

As a business reporter and political correspondent for The Associated Press and as Gannett News Service's Entertainment Editor based out of USA Today headquarters, my byline has appeared in every major newspaper in the United States, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today and countless other publications in dozens of languages worldwide.

I've covered everything all over the world -from the White House and Hollywood to the boardroom and beyond. I've also written for radio, television, magazines, and the theater.
