Before Studio 20

I was a community educator on tenant and health rights at Childhood Lead Action Project in Providence, Rhode Island, and the founder and community manager of a Costa Rican citizen journalism site.

During Studio 20, I worked directly with…

The Guardian, Storyful, ProPublica, Solutions Journalism Network

Final Project Partner


Problem I helped solve…

I helped ProPublica design a network for community engagers called the Crowd-Powered News Network.

Why Studio 20

I found colleagues trying to solve the same issues as I was: to use technology to more effectively help news reach its ever expanding digital potential. While learning multimedia, project management and coding skills, I also learned how technology, business and editorial interact with each other. At Studio 20 we lived within that intersection, and I have become an interpreter and connector of these disparate parts to help build a more efficient and complete digital news ecosystem.
