I currently develop digital policy and content strategy ABC News Radio. Occasionally I am sent places to ask questions and conduct interviews. My emphasis is in the convergence of analogue and digital technology. I speak at conferences and events about media, politics, and emerging technology.
I've worked in broadcasting since 1998. My career began as the assistant news director for KBHU, the college radio station for Black Hills State University. During my college career I worked my way up to music director, program director, and eventually general manager.
While attending college, and for a few years after I worked as an FM DJ for several commercial rock and country radio stations.
I began podcasting in 2004, and independently covered news and politics.
I was hired in 2007 by the Talk Radio News Service as the Chief United Nations Correspondent. I covered the UN daily for 2 years, and still report from the UN from time to time for ABC News. While at Talk Radio News I also reported daily as a political commentator for talk radio news stations across the country.
From mid-2007 through election day 2008 I covered the presidential election. I was at most major events including the initial debates, the New Hampshire Primary, Super Tuesday, numerous campaign stops, the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, and election day.
In both a personal and professional capacity I help people and companies understand internet and social media best practices. I've developed web branding, strategy, and execution campaigns for journalists Jack Rice, former congressman Bob Ney, literary agency Johnson Literary, publishing house Egmont USA, the United Nations Correspondents Association, and a few others. I've been involved with several large-scale projects including a massive iteration of ABC News Radio's online presence. I was also in charge of the Talk Radio News Service web iterations v 2.0 and 3.0. I have worked on web content, strategy, and execution with individuals on small projects, and large companies on large-scale projects. I also ran a podcast called The Creepy Sleepy Show from August 2004 - July 2009.
I work for ABC News in the News Radio silo. I wear many hats, and going in to work every day is exciting. I am in charge of developing digital content, website construction, data management, digital business development, and our overall web media and marketing strategy.
