Story
Tagline
NYC-based digital media pro and freelance writer/editor/content creator. Past, future, and present include ESPN, Bedrocket Media, Digital Trends, and Warren Miller Entertainment.
Introduction
As Editor-In-Chief at Digital Trends, I oversaw a staff of 9 editors and 30 contributors providing more than 40 pieces daily of news, analysis, and product reviews in over 10 categories of digital technology. I developed and implemented editorial strategy with the goal of growing site traffic and building the premier destination for an affluent and engaged general interest audience with a passion for digital technology. 

I have a 15-year track record of building new editorial properties and audiences in both start up environments and established media corporations. Most recently I oversaw the launch strategy for Network A, an action sports digital video channel launched in conjunction with YouTube's "Made For Web" initiative. Prior to that, I helped create ESPN.com's action sports section and oversaw day-to-day editorial operations there. I was also the first full-time hire at FREEZE, a category-defining ski magazine published by TransWorld Media, where I rose to Editor-In-Chief. 

In a freelance capacity, I have written and produced video for numerous national and international outlets. Most notably, I worked on the 2006 Winter Olympics broadcast for NBC and the 2008 Summer Olympics for NBCOlympics.com, for which I was awarded a Sports Emmy. I also continue to write the voice-over narration for the annual Warren Miller Entertainment ski and snowboard film.
