Background

I had the unique opportunity to join COLLINS to shape and build an editorial publication. From end-to-end, I devised the editorial strategy, unlocked stories, wrote and edited, and worked cross-functionally with leadership, designers, and Oak Studios. 

We shipped in July 2020 and published over 25 stories by December, maintaining an average 5-minute read-time. IDEAS exists to provide context, not content, into how we build new futures using creativity, strategy, and design. 

In 2020, AdAge awarded us Design Agency of the Year for our work with Twitch and for IDEAS.
