I’m a writer and reporter.
- My career began on college radio, then later on-air as an FM rock radio jock, and AM news talk radio reporter. During and after college I paid dues as an intern and a field marketing representative for Capitol and Warner Brothers records.
- While living in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota I was an early podcaster and Odeo user, and first used Twitter as a reporting tool during the 2006 midterm election.
- For the Talk Radio News Service I was a beat reporter at the United Nations, co-managed several radio row events, built websites, and developed digital strategy.
- After TRNS I worked for several years as the digital platform manager and a technology reporter for ABC News Radio. Later I worked for a few small startups.
- I have reported from Cairo, Sudan, Kenya, the Emirates, the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, Comic Con, CES, and SXSW. My work has been published by Gawker, Contently, The Washington Post, Wired, ABC News, and a few other outlets.
- Along the way I learned to use many modern content management systems and write a little code, primarily Rails, CSS, and PHP.
- I currently cover the UN for Gawker Media and publish news blog called The Transmitter. Occasionally I publish status updates to Twitter. My professional background is on LinkedIn.
- Also: I live in Brooklyn and I have a beard.
