In a career, people go through a series of position changes over a lifetime. In just a few years, I've had the opportunity to work in a number of positions, learning from my experiences in each organization and taking with me a fresh perspective of the industry. So far in my career, I've had the opportunity to produce videos for The Cincinnati Enquirer, cover local stories as a backpack journalist for The Washington Post, be a part of the daily television news grind that is The Today Show, cultivate a social media following in the first-ever MTV Twitter Jockey competition and work as a jack-of-all-trades journalist for U.S. News & World Report, where I covered education technology, developed social media strategies for multiple sections and built web pages for the site. Most recently, I have been spending my time in New York City, where I work as a community producer for Mashable, focusing heavily on the Business and Tech sections. Beyond handling day-to-day social strategy, I also work on live news coverage and handle overall strategy for the company's LinkedIn and Google+ presences. In June 2010, I graduated from Ohio University's E. W. Scripps School of Journalism, as the top graduating Online Journalism senior. I now give back to the school as the president of the Scripps Alumni and Friends board and I'm also a member of the School of Communication's Professional Advisory Board. Finally, I love movies, television, craft beer and golf. If you love any of these, we should be friends.
