Wistia, Cambridge, MA, August 2011 - September 2016
Since starting at Wistia in August 2011 when we were a team of 12, I've moved from working on video encoding to writing and editing our blog to running our blog, social media, and community to leading our content, community, and social team. During that time, we've done several major overhauls of our blog design and strategy, launched a library of videos and guides to help democratize video marketing and production, and grown a close-knit, enthusiastic online community of video producers. I was the point person for email marketing at Wistia for about 3 years, growing our list from around 10,000 to over 150,000 and helping others within the company communicate with our customers and audience via Pardot and HubSpot. I finished my time at Wistia as a Senior Engagement Manager, figuring out how to bridge marketing and sales with more middle-of-funnel and lead generation content.

Drink Salon on Tech and Ethics, Cambridge, MA, June 2015 - March 2017
EMW Bookstore's Drink Salon on Tech and Ethics brings together a community and a supportive space to spark challenging discussions on the role of technology in our everyday lives. Each month, we invite featured speakers to lead a conversation, encouraging salon guests to make new connections and to critically think about how technology relates to some of the most important questions we ask humanity. I organize music for the event every month and was the curator/organizer for a music-themed salon.
Virtuality, rotating, July 2012 - July 2017
Virtuality was born in the forests of Vermont during a regional Burning Man event and has since evolved into a collective of friends organizing music, art, and technology-focused events together. After a series of experiments over the last couple years in our respective houses, we organized our first major Boston-based event in December 2013 at a rented loft space in Allston, and we've continued to head up and help out with events in Boston and Vermont. Within the collective, I focus on logistics, music curation, and creative direction.
Earmilk, online, July 2011 - October 2014, October 2015 - February 2016
As a senior editor at Earmilk, I served as a liaison between the editorial and executive teams to make sure that goals were aligned, helped hire and onboard new writers and editors, led regular remote meetings, and collaborated with the executive team to discuss site direction, marketing initiatives, and staffing concerns. I also created content, mostly focusing on event reviews and artist interviews. A year or so after leaving my editorial post, I took over a biweekly underground dance music column called Night Rumours for a few months.
Firefly Art Core, February 2014 - September 2015
As a co-leader of Firefly Arts Collective's Art Grants Core for two years, I helped distribute over $10,000 in arts grants per year, including grants for artists in the New England area and artists traveling from other regions. In addition to distributing funds, we built a new web system for the grant application process, came up with non-monetary ways to help support artists, organized a judging committee, and helped with logistics for art transportation and setup to the Vermont Firefly event and FIGMENT Festival in downtown Boston.
