I work in the overlap between journalism, tech and business, and the storytelling I do is powered by community outreach and a focus on the audience. By involving communities in journalism, I can help news organizations earn trust and develop sustainable business models for the present and future. Social media, code and my ears are my favorite tools.

I set a personal goal to help myself make time for reading: read one book every week for a year. Full disclosure: I'm four weeks behind (turns out this is kinda difficult). Have a look at what I've read so far and tell me what you think I should read next! And don't forget to add me on Goodreads.
