As a journalist, I'm most interested in new & evolving ways to gather & share stories.

It isn't just about what is said, but how it's said. I am particularly intrigued by places where technology & society butt heads.

I currently work as National News Editor at the CNN World headquarters in Atlanta. I am responsible for identifying and developing domestic news stories for all CNN platforms…digital, television, mobile, social.

My team oversees the editorial and operations of our domestic news coverage, ensures continuing coverage to continuously break news on priority stories and partners with all platforms to create written and visual content.

Before that I worked in the CNN New York bureau on cross-platform newsgathering and planningwhere I help conceive, plan, produce,write & shoot character driven, data heavy, enterprise multimedia projects for broadcast, digital & mobile & helped plan for CNN's more collaborative & creative future.

In addition, I wrote for years at FreeWilliamsburg.
