I am a digital editor, copy editor and engagement editor, most recently at The New York Times, where I worked for 4 years. At The Times, I worked mainly in the New York section as a digital editor, developing projects and news packages for nytimes.com. I also managed the section’s social media accounts, most notably the @NYTMetro account on Twitter.
