Economics in society's central nervous system
As an economist by trade, I've held to the notion that our role in making the best decisions with the resources we have is vital to one of the key strategic industries in society - news media.
I've spent the last twenty years editing, curating, and monetising some of the most compelling content in the online arena. Where a deeper understanding of economics has afforded an opportunity to empower human communication, I've led the way in its implementation.
During my ten years at the forefront of state and national online media, I've been repeatedly recognised for outstanding content outcomes. I am passionate in my belief that the tools of the 'dismal science' are there for us to amplify the connections between human communities. A deep understanding — both academic and intuitive — has led me to constant innovation.
As part of this innovation, I've taken on Agile team practices and a growing data science skill base to ensure the most thoroughly integrated content production workflow.
I don't fear changes in the industry, I drive them. I make absolutely certain that I have the understanding and the practical skills to bring that empowerment to small, agile teams and large, dedicated organisations alike.
From the story-teller to the economist to the editor, I take my role in the world seriously — but everyone's got to be enjoying the ride.
