Senior Director of Audience Development and Insight at HarperCollins Publishers
Publishing | Greater New York City Area, US
An interdisciplinary hybrid with 20 years of editorial and digital strategy experience, I have worked as an alt-weekly feature writer; as the editor of a Webby-nominated advertising website; as a freelance writer, strategist, and editor; as the director of social media at New York City’s official tourism website; and as social media editor at The New York Observer.
Since 2013, I have headed up audience development at HarperCollins, the second-largest consumer book publisher in the world. I also teach in the publishing programs at NYU and Drexel University as we all try to navigate the future of digital publishing.
My nonfiction and humor pieces have appeared in dozens of publications, including Slate, Salon, Print, Communication Arts, the New York Daily News, and the New York Post. My fiction has appeared in publications like McSweeney’s, One Story, and Fence. These and other short stories appear in my collection Why They Cried (Joyland eBooks/ECW Press 2010).
