I am the Head of User Research at Reddit.
I have mentored start-up CEOs on scaling their organizations and have researched management strategy at two start-ups -- one in stealth mode and the other seeking to be acquired. I have also advised a major metropolitan news organization on social media policy strategy.
My industry experience comes from working in a range of organizational types -- corporations, news media, marketing agencies, non-profit humanitarian aid, arts administration -- that have been formative to my experience in organizational change, strategy, corporate social responsibility, social media, and technology.
I was the recipient of an IRTS fellowship to work as an online journalist for W-NBC 4 in New York City. Previous employers include PayPal in San Jose, UPS Corporate Public Affairs on Capitol Hill, Edelman (public relations agency) on K Street, the National Geographic Society, WTTG Fox 5 DC, and the American Red Cross (headquarters).
I have skills in research, legislative/public affairs, policy analysis, digital public relations, media production, investigative journalism, photography, digital asset management, and rights licensing.
