I'm the director of programming at PolicyMic, a news and analysis startup. Before that I was a digital editor at Al Jazeera America, social media director for Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek, and an associate editor at The Atlantic.

What was your first job as a journalist?

I was an associate writer at National Journal's The Hotline for the summer, aggregating political news.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I learned to type on one.

How is social media changing news?

Everything is faster and voicier. Mistakes are made more often and vetted just as easily.
