Introduction
Since May 2007, I've worked as the Bay Area News Group's online coordinator. I offer best-practice advice on blogging and social media, forum moderation, reader-generated content and live chats.

I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor's in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University.

My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University's Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers' universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at TheStandard.com and Salon.com.

I joined the Contra Costa Times in September 2001 as a copy editor and paginator. I became the paper's first morning online reporter in January 2006.

Great service, local artwork and coffee, a consistently solid selection of regional microbrews, and a lineup of infrequent but high-quality music gigs and community events

I came in early on a Saturday morning and saw a gentleman behind the counter answer three other customers' questions quickly and politely. And he only charged me $5 for a while-you-wait shoe shine.

Their kind and considerate staff were knowledgeable about upcoming events and let me and a photographer interview fans watching an NBA playoff game at short notice.
