About Me

I’m an educator and journalist. I love creative tools that make life better. I spend a lot of time exploring new stuff — sites, apps, podcasts… I love sharing these in brief email bites. My day job: I’m director of teaching & learning at the Newmark Grad School of Journalism. I used to write for Time Magazine. Before that I was a violinist. More about me here on my site. Or on Twitter or LinkedIn or YouTube.
