PhD candidate, award-winning, cross-platform reporter and journalism educator described as a “trailblazer” for moving journalism in a digital direction. Working on "Chaos in the Archives: The Politics of Ephemerality, Social Media and Cultural Heritage" in the Communications Department of the Columbia Journalism School.
My work bridges journalism, rigorous scholarly research methods, and a background in digital technology development. This combination
comes from my experience as a Communications PhD candidates with more than a decade of experience as a newspaper reporter and participation in civic technology, including as the founder the prize-winning civic app project, Civic Playground. I also teach communications and new media at New York University and Fordham University. The work you see on this site reflect stories published before I left daily reporting to pursue a doctorate degree. My appreciations to the editors who helped to craft some of them into prize-winning stories.
