I worked with Reading Bear, an online literacy tool developed by Larry Sanger, who was one of the founders of Wikipedia. I sold the complex project to Larry’s team and managed a team of developers, designers and content managers on the project from start to finish. Here is the final product.
Here are some stories I wrote for usatoday.com and the USA TODAY Network.
I have worked for 20 years as a copyeditor for journalism and marketing companies.
I also actively work with managing Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube personally and professionally. I also have a working knowledge of TikTok.
I also like using relevant Facebook groups to share content. Here is an example.
Use of photos/video
We’re a visual society, so I strongly believe in using pictures and videos to actively share stories. Here is a Facebook viral post I wrote and shot video for about a prayer following a high school football game. The video was later spotlighted on the Today Show. I also like using sharing content across platforms. Here’s an example of making a video from a raw audio file and pictures from coverage of a local high school baseball player who made the Chicago White Sox. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with editors and reporters to develop audio and video content.
Leadership and management
Have managed teams of full-time workers and volunteers throughout my career.
