I recently joined Knight-Mozilla OpenNews as its community manager. Previously, I was web editor for the Philadelphia Public School Notebook where I managed web content and administered our Drupal site and CiviCRM database. I am a proponent of open source software, and I am grateful to have been able to learn from and participate in the communities for the tools I use.
As I have built my skills as a web journalist, I have become increasingly interested in how technology and journalism work together and influence one another. To that end, I am co-organizer of the Hacks/Hackers chapter in Philly; I have been building my programming skills with PyStarPhilly and Web Start Women; and I am a member of the Online News Association, Mayfirst/People Link, and Investigative Reporters and Editors.
