I serve as the editorial lead for all of CNN's mobile products which include a mobile web site and apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone. In this role I set the day-to-day and strategy for how to best present CNN's journalism to a mobile audience. I also work closely with the product and business team to update and develop new products.

As a digital media producer for CNN International TV, I focused on how to best incorporate photos, videos and other user generated content into the network's lineup of shows from around the world. I also developed ways to engage viewers online and on social networking sites.
In this position I played a key role in coverage of the Haiti earthquake, the 2010 World Cup, the Arab Spring, the Royal Wedding and other major news events.
I write articles and columns about the intersection of technology and journalism for this respected non-profit journalism organization.
In my nearly six years at the Orlando Sentinel, I served as a report, columnist/blogger and social media coordinator.
I covered everything from shuttle launches and hurricanes to Terri Schiavo's death and the state legislature.
My last position at the Sentinel was as the technology, reporter, columnist/blogger and social media coordinator.
I covered technology culture, trends and local companies and wrote a weekly personal technology column called “User’s Guide” as well as a weekly feature called “How 2.” I also shot, edited and appeared in videos for the newspaper’s website and I wrote a technology blog for the Sentinel called Etan on Tech.
I've been a leader in using social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook to find sources and story ideas, promote my work and serve as a community ambassador for the paper.
