I spent more than a decade as a staff reporter and editor covering entertainment, media, technology, and travel at some of the nation's biggest outlets. Full-time stops include HuffPost, The Hollywood Reporter, BuzzFeed, Yahoo, and NBCUniversal's SYFY network. I've also freelanced for Vice, Observer, and many other outlets. At SYFY, I hosted 120 episodes of a popular podcast about fandom and hosted on-stage interviews and panels across the country.
I have also worked for years as a copywriter and editorial/brand consultant for both start-ups and established companies. And I run a political fundraising newsletter, Progressives Everywhere, which has over 13,000 subscribers and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for grassroots political candidates.
Now, I'm bringing all that experience together.
I've learned how to connect with audiences of all demographics, with a special focus on millennials, superfans, activists, and consumers with a passion. I know what makes them tick and what ticks them off. I also know what gets reporters, editors, and social media buzzing. I can help you connect with an audience, earn press coverage, and build your brand in an authentic way, whether it's with writing, video strategy, or overall planning.
