I am currently an Associate Producer at NowThis News - a news start-up that produces short-form video, tailored for the social and mobile user. We create more than 50 pieces of unique content a day to distribute across platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Vine and Tumblr.


What was your first job as a journalist?

Multimedia reporter covering breaking news. Basically, Nightcrawler was my autobiography.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Nope, but I have earrings made from typewriter keys (millennial alert). So that's basically the same thing, right?

How is social media changing news?

How isn't social media changing news? I mean, now my entire job is producing news that will be exclusively consumed on social!
