Services/Speaking/Consulting

THIS IS HISTORIC: RIGHT NOW IT IS HACK THE HOOD 24/7

Speaking engagements, webinars, workshops:  I’m a skilled speaker, facilitator and trainer, and love doing all of them. I’ve spoken at a number of conferences, including  SXSW InteractiveNetroots NationWeb 2.0 ExpoWomen Action & The Media and the Online News Association Conference.I’ve also taught workshops, guest classes and webinars for The Poynter Institute, The Knight Digital Media Center at the USC Annenberg School of Journalis, JAWS,  The Media Consortium, and The East Bay Community Foundation.

Civic engagement and digital strategy: I excel at working with teams that need to develop executable strategies they can roll out and get buy-in for. I’m budget-conscious, creative, and collaborative–but good at moving things forward.
