Bio

Around these parts I'm the resident social media person and do a lot of the community engagement. I recruit new talent, connect people and hopefully bring some spotlight to Charlotte's women, tech and fashion.

I am active in the non-profit sector, too. I'm reppin' TEDxCharlotte's steering committee and run the social media accounts, I get crazy satisfaction working with From the Hip Communications as a communications strategist, as well as do social media stuffs for Pecha Kucha Charlotte. I love what I do and the people I get to meet and work with is the biggest job-perk of all.

Connecting people through accessible communication using new media like mobile web is at the core of trying to explain what I… nay, we are successful at: being the largest online only news source in Charlotte. Basically Justin, Matt, Meck, James and I run amok and people dig it. Even better, we love that other people love what we do! 2 Charlotte Magazine "Best Local Blog" awards in a row! Woo hoo!
