Starting in August 2015, I've had a fundamental role in the creation and development of "The Best Right Now" series of roundups. I wrote the initial batch of roundups, helped develop the design and style of the product, and created a strategy and workflow for future roundups. I've since developed a standard operating procedure for other writers to create additional roundups in the TBRN series and continue to contribute to the series myself.

Starting in 2016, I began work on managing the new Reviewed.com also package content centered on holidays. That work included: managing all writers and content, finalizing content strategy, managing effective deadlines for the content and package as whole, working with dev on implementing new tools for the features and the brand new landing page layouts, and creating the final products.
I've written a number of features for Reviewed.com/USA Today that include consumer advocacy pieces, hands-on previews, interviews, and more.
During my time at Reviewed.com, I worked on reviewing two categories of electronics: headphones and laptops. Numerous reviews I've written have gotten direct syndication with USA Today.
The post & courier
I worked as festival reporter covering the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, South Carolina. My work included previews, reviews, and features. It was featured both in print and online.
My spring semester at Syracuse University was spent commuting to New York City to work as an Editorial Intern at Popular Mechanics. While I performed a number of duties behind the scenes, I also had a chance to interview Andrew Sheppard, president of Kabam Studios.
