Entrepreneur bridging technology and media, journalist, instigator
Internet | San Francisco Bay Area, US
I’m an entrepreneur bridging the worlds of technology and media. I believe we are just at the start of the digital revolution and have barely begun building the foundations of a more connected world. The opportunities are limitless.
I co-founded Storify, the leading social media storytelling tool, building it into an award-winning product used by media companies, brands, non-profit organizations and political groups around the world. I also founded Hacks/Hackers, a global grassroots movement that has grown to tens of thousands of journalists and technologists collaborating to build the future of media.
Before making the leap to technology entrepreneurship, I worked as a foreign correspondent covering conflicts, culture, disasters, business and international politics across Europe, the former Soviet Union, Middle East and Asia for The Associated Press. I was an embedded reporter with the U.S. military during the 2003 Iraq war and covered the war in Afghanistan after the Sept. 11 attacks, among other global assignments.
