And I’m a Deputy Editor at Medium.
How long have you been at Medium?
I’ve been at Medium for 4.5 months.
Why did you join Medium?
I believe in creating opportunities for anyone and everyone to write and reach an audience, I love the combination of high-end journalism and blogging (rarely do you see both in one place!), and I love to build the biggest possible things.
What’s your favorite thing about working for Medium?
I see writing move people here, in ways that I haven’t at other publications. In the comments, on Twitter, even in our internal Slack…Medium publishes powerful stories that reach and affect an audience, every single day. That’s very cool.
What’s your favorite Medium story and why?
Anthony Bourdain died a few weeks after I started at Medium, and seeing this piece from a writer on the Medium platform so clearly articulated to me why I wanted to work here. It was just so good, so much better than so much else out there, and it just showed up! Incredible.
What is something that you have learned about yourself since joining Medium?
I get so much more done when Slack chatter is kept to a minimum.
