I recently researched and wrote the CultureSonar documentary, Woodstock: 3 Days That Changed Everything which aired on hundreds of public television stations nationwide. It's currently ranked as one of Amazon's "hot sellers." Here's the trailer:
I oversee a staff of 50+ freelance writers and a complex editorial calendar for two popular sites, CultureSonar.com (music/entertainment) and NowWithPurpose.com (wellness/lifestyle). My responsibilities include sourcing story ideas, assigning them, editing/ fact-checking, and sourcing appropriate images and media.
Recently, I worked with Civic Entertainment Group on a complex project for the Ford Motor Company involving a major internal rebrand. I coordinated outreach to employees worldwide, created content for their company website as well as for an inaugural global company live event. I also scripted a video on a new product, and much more. There were constantly shifting goalposts, but I utilized various organizational tools and processes to keep it all on track.

American Towns Media/CT hired me to write hundreds of articles that could be used as hyper-local content for their clients. This was an especially fun project, because it capitalized on both my love of research and of learning lots of random stuff (there's a reason I passed the test for "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire" on several occasions). Here are just a few samples.
Here are samples of some other web articles, written for various entities (PDF files):
