About

shannonI’m an award-winning journalist living and working in my native Philadelphia.

You can currently find me working as the community manager for Billy Penn, a mobile news platform that aims to make Philly better; and in the Journalism Department at Temple University, where I teach Multimedia Storytelling to undergrads.

Previously, I ran an online news publication called NEast Philly. Over the course of four years, I worked as a news blogger, then social media strategist, then project manager at NewsWorks.

I’ve worked in print and digital publishing, and have experience in content marketing and audience acquisition.

My job allows me to see and learn about Philadelphia, which, aside from being my hometown, is also my passion. On any given day you can find me writing, editing and trying to solve the mystery of a city that’s so well-loved and so fiercely hated.
