Bush-Obama America / Write For The Future, David Dent @ NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. New York, NY
Research Assistant / Technology Manager, December 2014 - March 2015
I've worked with Professor David Dent and his team of undergraduate and graduate students on two projects.
Bush-Obama USA is a politics website that explores what Dent calls "Bush-Obama counties" — 130 counties that voted both George W. Bush and Barack Obama into office. Those are two very polarizing presidents, so I helped investigate how these counties can act as a looking-glass into the hearts and minds of American as a whole. I played a role in research and managing social media & technology.
Write for the Future is a college essay admissions service. I managed social media and helped maintain the webpage.
The Verge, Vox Media Inc. New York, NY
Intern, July 2011 - May 2014
I worked in physical and virtual newsrooms with one of the fastest growing teams on the internet. I started as an intern with This is my next (before it evolved into The Verge in November 2011) where I contributed to launching the site's product database. Other things I've done:
- Wrote news articles and product “hands-on” posts based on online and in-person reporting. Participated in news vets and assisted editors during event live-blogs.
- Assisted photo and video production on various projects, including “Back to School” guides, celebrity portraits, Small Empires, and the live-audience show On the Verge.
- Researched detailed product specifications, transcribed sensitive interviews often under embargo, and helped run online reader giveaways and contests.
- Worked at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) three times.
- Assisted running reader sweepstakes/giveaways.
The Daily Targum, Rutgers University student newspaper New Brunswick, NJ
Staff Technology Writer, September 2013 - May 2015
I publish "Tech Tuesday", a creatively named weekly column on technology. The column primarily focuses on tech invented at Rutgers but also covers bigger stories through the lens of what they mean for Rutgers.
For HackRU spring 2014, I wrote and narrated a documentary titled "Software is Eating Rutgers" about three stories that demonstrated the power of the vibrant tech community at Rutgers. The documentary was accompanied by an eight-page wrap in the print newspaper with photos and a longform feature on the birth of the Rutgers tech scene.
@Daily_Targum Twitter Manager, September 2014 - February 2015
I re-wrote the print newspaper's headlines and posted them to Twitter. Also managed live-tweeting events, including an interview with Rutgers University President Robert Barchi.
The Office of the Borough President of Manhattan, New York, NY
Intern, Summer 2009 & Summer 2010
I worked on converting old paper databases to digital ones, entering various information about Manhattan's Community Boards into a comprehensive database. I also helped record bus lane traffic violations for part of a larger report that the office would later publish.
