Digital Content Producer

Cleveland, Ohio

I lean on more than 10 years of journalism experience to deliver on-point reporting, seo-friendly copy and concepts that break new digital ground. I’ve worked at papers, media companies and ad agencies big and small, which has afforded me the knowledge and know-how to produce work that engages and informs. I graduated from Ohio University and St. Ignatius, and I’m a lifelong Clevelander committed to telling stories that matter. The way I see it: it’s never too late for good news.
