The future of journalism is a space race. The more of us working toward a sustainable future, the more likely we are to get there.
I develop support systems and business strategies for independent mission-driven journalism creators and help news providers understand and better serve the audiences who will chart our collective future: Gen Z and Alpha.

Most recently, I served as vice president of vox.com where I worked with a team of journalism's most-talented editors, videographers, podcasters and audience strategists – all in service of a mission to create equity through access to information and build sustainable, diversified revenue streams.
Previously, I spent time at USA Today, The Desert Sun, Zap2It, The Washington Post, AOL News and lived many fulfilling media lives as a content developer, managing editor, blogger and Chatwoman (if you know, you know).
I'm focused on building a future for an evolved ecosystem of creator journalists, reaching Gen Z & Alpha audiences with a diversity of perspectives across a range of media. My 13-year-old son and his friends are the next generation of thinkers and doers and they deserve journalism delivered on their terms – but with the benefit of what we've learned so far about rigorous, ethical work.
