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 (tampabay.com, 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.
