I have an in-depth knowledge of new media technologies and trends and am interested in data visualization, analytics, cyber security and how web technology creates efficiencies in operations, particularly in community organizations/nonprofit organizations.
My experience lies in integrated communications, web development, content creation and project management for web-based software. Currently, I’m working for the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Center for Communication Programs, for the Health Communications Capacity Collaborative program. Prior to my current position, I worked in the B2B software world in digital marketing, crafted numerous websites as a front-end developer and wrote by-lined and ghost-written articles on tech topics (here’s a Pinterest board of articles.) I spent nine years as the Web Technology Director at The Horizon Foundation, a proactive, strategic philanthropy in Columbia, Maryland where, I provided counsel and direction on how web technology could best achieve organizational goals in addition to directing activity for the Foundation’s web properties and social media.
Prior to the Foundation, I was a founding member of Ellipsis Partners, a strategic consulting firm focusing on the online needs of nonprofit organizations and associations. Additionally, I worked in public relations for the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Kennedy Krieger Institute, an internationally recognized institution for children with developmental disorders.
I am also a contributor at Tech Cocktail, a media company focused on emerging technology and startup events, entrepreneurs and trends.
