Missed Pitches

I'm currently helping develop Missed Pitches, a newsletter devoted to finding a home for rejected pitches. Follow Missed Pitches on Twitter and subscribe here.  

The New Humanitarian

As digital production editor at The New Humanitarian, I managed production for daily stories and larger projects. Additionally, I refined the organization's visual brand, which included high-quality images, digital storytelling tools and data visualization (see more on my visual page). 

Examples include an engaging data-centric look at how the aid industry has changed, a two-part series on the persistent conflict in Colombia (part of a reporting stream on the country) and a photo feature on the impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous communities in Peru's Amazon.

Second Sun Project

In December 2019, I launched Second Sun, an experimental online storytelling project, which is currently on hiatus. The original iteration published stories via newsletter on Fridays and online the following Sunday. Newsletters regularly attained open rates around 70% and opens often exceed the number of subscribers. 

My thoughts on the newsletter-first concept was featured in Revue's "Newsletter predictions 2020." (Dec. 31, 2019)

Pew Research Center

I managed and collaborated on the Center's weekly newsletter, which included the past week's many publications. We also occasionally sent "one-off" newsletters tailored to a certain news event or content package. I coordinated the writing and production for these along with a group of coworkers. 

York Daily Record

I created and managed a weekly poll that transformed into a morning news update with casual yet informative approach to the day's news. The "York short" was published every week day during my tenure.
