The Daily Texan

As the former social media editor, engagement editor and director of digital strategy at The Daily Texan, I launched multiple projects and edited all of the organization's digital and multimedia products. In spring 2020, I also oversaw the digital team during the Texan's temporary transition from a daily print publication to an online-only news organization during the coronavirus pandemic.

Social Media

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram

I've specialized in growing the Texan's Twitter presence, where I led our digital coverage of Election Night and the coronavirus pandemic. I also directed a redesign of our Instagram posts, which contributed to a 15 percent growth in followers in one semester.

Facebook Groups

Hooked, In Session and Raising Voices

As the Texan's first engagement editor, I was heavily involved with the launch of Facebook groups focused on campus news, diversity and politics. For one semester, I ran the three Facebook groups and grew them to a combined total membership from zero to more than 1,500.

Audience Engagement

Curious Campus and Curious Capitol

As the Texan's first engagement reporter, I launched Curious Campus, a series that sought and answered questions from readers. I also launched Curious Capitol, a similar series aimed at questions about the Texas Legislature, and a questionnaire soliciting stories and questions relating to the coronavirus.
