I’m an investigative reporter, editor, business intelligence analyst and web professional.
I can dig into public records to hold the government accountable, analyze data and use visualizations to tell its stories, make written copy clear, concise and informative, and build a website to engage users.
I ran the Washington Post’s homepage, working to quickly keep the page up-to-date and relevant, and assisting in catapulting the newspaper’s site ahead of other legacy media competitors with tens of millions of new users.
I have been a daily news reporter and editor, and have covered a wide range of beats. I reported on state-level government in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Maryland, and municipal and county-level government in Ohio. I also have covered all levels of courts.
I also can use web platforms, programming, and content management systems to connect people, news and technology. Through user input and feedback, as well as using principles of information architecture, I redesigned the website at MarylandReporter.com to improve its usability and interaction, increasing unique visitors by nearly a third.
Additionally, I am an experienced business intelligence analyst, and can use visualization software to analyze data to present it in a way that is clear and easy to understand.
