Building publications that matter
I’ve spent 15 years in leadership roles at media organizations dedicated to serving diverse audiences. My most recent role was as Director of Editorial Operations for OkayMedia where I did audience-focused editorial strategy. Currently, I’m Director of Content Development at OkayMedia—part of a team launching a new division dedicated to audio storytelling.

As the Managing Editor of Fi2W I also produced the award winning Fi2W podcast covering immigration news and culture. Our stories were often repurposed for public radio. Find it on the Fi2W site, iTunes, Podbean.
