Introduction
I like making things work.

Most recently, I worked deputy social media editor working for Reuters.com in New York, an aggregation and data journalist for @MatthewKeysLive and 
The Desk, and a curious being.

Before working at Reuters, I was an online news producer at KGO-TV's ABC7News.com.

Prior to working at ABC7News.com, I was a freelance journalist and news aggregator on Tumblr and Twitter. My content and reporting appeared in on-air and online products by ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, MSNBC, CNN, Al Jazeera English, PBS NewsHour, the Los Angeles Times, the New Zealand Herald, the Week Magazine and several local television and radio stations throughout the United States.

I've also contributed to Poynter and have been profiled by MediaBistro's 10,000 Words. I am currently a finalist for an Online Journalism Award for excellence in breaking news.

In addition to being an online and aggregation journalist, I'm a social media enthusiast who likes growing brands and communities by engagement and awareness. I believe social only works if you're willing to give as much as you hope to get.
