Hi, I’m Mel. I design and then build products that help people learn, find information, or share what they’ve learned with others.
I have more than a decade of experience working as a product manager, digital strategist, editor, writer, and producer. I've led both teams and projects — and come armed with skills ranging from editorial to product to business strategy.
I am currently serving a two-year term appointment at 18F, a digital design and technology agency within the U.S. government. I also write a weekly column for the Poynter Institute and lead Media Public, a public media startup that's funded through a Knight Prototype Grant.
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time hiking, exploring small towns in North Carolina, and hanging out with A and our dog Sadie.</div> </div>
