This spring I worked in Cairo for Small World News/Storymaker. I edited and packaged content created in North Africa by small teams of local reporters. Our team trained a group of Arabic-speaking Sudanese activists on the fundamentals of storytelling using mobile devices.
My background is in both broadcasting and digital strategy. Early in my career I worked as an FM rock radio jock, and AM news talk radio reporter. During and after college I paid some dues as an intern and a field marketing representative for Capitol and Warner records. Later I worked for ABC News Radio as the digital platform manager.
As a reporter I have been assigned to the UN and was a member of UNCA. I’ve filed digital and broadcast reports during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns, events like Comic Con and SXSW, Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, and the Emirates.
