Below is an overview of my past and current projects in writing, editing, and illustration. I’ve chosen a few articles and soundbites to highlight—for further examples, please follow the links to my online profiles and content.

 

As Content and Social Media Manager at UpActive (formerly SportUp) and UpMetrics, I’m currently working in an engaged, startup environment with a team that understands the important role that afterschool programs play in young people’s lives. I’ve had the chance to work directly on social media and content strategy, website design, branding, and product design & development alongside the founders, VP of Engineering, and Director of Product.

Since beginning at UpActive, I’ve created a number of feature articles on partners and programs that are doing good work in their communities, including a piece on the Watts Bears—this included a photo gallery, a short documentary film (below), and a written piece, which was republished by GOOD Magazine in November, 2016.

As Content Marketing Manger at AFAR, I had the opportunity to work closely with the Director of Digital Content, the Chief Technology Officer, and the Editor-in-Chief to help define the scope and voice of the brand across social media and email newsletters. During that time, I also contributed articles to the website, curated numerous guides for content licensing programs, and ran sweepstakes and partner programs for our online community.

ROWING-MAGAZINE-logotrans

Since 2011, I’ve worked as a staff writer, correspondent, and contributing writer for Rowing News. A list of print articles is available upon request (very few are published online). Features have included covering major championship racing at the junior, collegiate, and international levels, among them the 2011 World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia; the 2012 Olympic Rowing Regatta at Eton Dorney, the 2013 World Rowing Championships in Chungju, South Korea, and the 2014 World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

 

RowingRelated2015-1

I started the website RowingRelated.com in October 2010, and it has seen a growing readership ever since. From the beginning, I have served as both the editor and primary writer, working with great contributors on many occasions. The site has also been an education in multimedia journalism, and I’ve conducted numerous interviews in audio and video formats. Its social imprint is growing, with more than 45,000 followers across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and I’m continually amazed by and thankful for the reception that the site has enjoyed.
