Senior Deputy Editor, Engagement, Sports & Culture

On Aug. 1, 2005, I walked into graduate school at American University and fell in love – with digital journalism. Since then, I’ve happily made a career of reimagining historic news organizations for online, beginning at the National Geographic Society, then The Times-Picayune in New Orleans and these days at the great Tampa Bay Times. I oversee our digital efforts (, social media, newsletters, design, audio and video) as well as our Photography, Sports and Life & Culture teams. I was raised on the California coast, in San Diego, and spent summers on the prairies of Saskatchewan, where my father was born. And now, finally, a beach kid has returned home, but this time to the warm waters of the Gulf.

The new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms for most people, but for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.
