I have experience in independent publishing, digital marketing strategy and social media community management. I now focus my career on teaching and organizing professional development workshops/trainings in web analytics, social media, blogging, and publishing entrepreneurship.
I’m formerly an editor for Clamor Magazine and JSTOR Daily. I’ve worked in social media marketing and strategy for higher education, advertising agencies, and non-profits. I’ve been published in Chicago Sun-Times, Time Out Chicago, Bitch Media, Paste, and more.
I’ve spoken about media and pop culture at Chicago Public Radio, WGN and at conferences including BlogHer and EMP Pop Conference.
Right now, I’m a writer/editor for Cultural Pulse Project, which connects non-profits with online pop culture communities.
I’m the co-founder and publisher of The Learned Fangirl, a web publication focused on the geekier side of pop culture, fandom, and online community.
