I was the managing editor of NewsTrust from July 2010 to July 2011, and I loved it. Now I'm a staff writer at ReadWrite, and my own site is Everything is ablaze!.

I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, where I learned the importance of the civic freedom to disagree. I graduated from Brown University in 2009, completing an independent concentration in Music & Mind. That taught me how to read and write, and it showed me the awesome responsibility held by those who control the discourse.

I joined NewsTrust because I believe in it. The media message is so confusing and distorted that we need each other to help sort it out.

I love imagining new media businesses. I don't think it's as daunting a task as it might seem to rebuild media and civic institutions. It's just a matter of adjusting to new ways of thinking about the gathering and dissemination of information, which are common sense to me as someone who grew up in the Internet Age.

Nice storytelling skills, but it's purely made up.
