Digital Editorial Work
I wrote articles, such as "Childproofing the new marijuana edibles" and "Loveys, blankies, bears, and other comfort objects for kids" and edited and packaged stories in collaboration with senior editors and freelancers; I built content in the CMS and also planned and wrote weekly newsletters with an eye to analytics, SEO, and generating traffic.
Researcher, writer, editor, Oct 2006 – Jul 2007
I wrote copy for the site prior to and during the launch and oversaw user-generated content. I researched, built, and managed the "Babblepedia" online database for which I wrote pithy entries and developed and wrote weekly features "Cribsheet" and "Pediatrician Poll."
Contributing writer Sep 2006 – June 2009
Summer intern May 2006 – Aug 2006
I pitched and wrote personal essays and articles, including "Ball Breakers, Grindhouse proves Tarantino's not just for guys." and interviewed authors, filmmakers, and musicians for Q&A pieces. I also wrote movie reviews. I contributed daily to the Scanner culture blog and weekly to the Screengrab film blog.
