About me

Experienced editor-in-chief and managing editor publishing high-quality news, photography, cultural content, and fiction. I oversee all story commissions, editing, photography, design, direction, and budget for VICE Magazine while managing the print team. I work across VICE’s vertical sites – from Motherboard to Broadly to Noisey and more – on special themed issues and packages, identifying key opportunities to collaborate. I spearhead the optimization of our content for VICE’s digital sites: creating a roll-out plan and schedule, refreshing headlines and packaging so our pieces work for a digital audience, curating multimedia assets, and working with the PR and social media teams to ensure our content is seen and has impact. I also manage the global print teams to ensure that they cover key issues that matter to our audience, are producing high quality content, and realize opportunities for special events and tent-poles, while also approving local stories.
