Professional Experience

I'm a writer specializing in comedy, entertainment, TV and Internet culture with a knack for finding viral stories. I spent over 5 years working as an Editor at The Huffington Post, where I ran the Comedy vertical, created two web series, hosted a podcast, developed recurring series and conducted live and written interviews with talent. I'm also a humor writer with excellent social media copy writing and strategy skills. One time I led a week-long viral campaign to find and meet Bill Murray in Austin, TX. I succeeded.
