I am an assistant professor in the Department of Journalism, Media Studies and Public Relations at Hofstra University where I teach advanced online journalism in the undergraduate and graduate program.
My research agenda explores the intersection of social media in journalism practice and curriculum and I am a regular presenter at national and regional journalism conferences in the U.S. Canada, Ireland and Scotland. I also contribute to Poynter, the leading journalism foundation in the U.S.
In 2010, I founded Hofstra’s award-winning students news site, Long Island Report. I am also the founding editor of IrishCentral. com, the US-based Irish Web site that was launched in March 2009 and is now the leading Irish American Web site.
I have more 25 years of senior editorial experience in both print and online media, and I have created websites and social media strategies for the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform, the Irish charity GOAL and the original web space for The Irish Voice and Irish America magazine, all based in NYC.
Prior to switching to digital, I worked at international newspaper titles including the Australian Financial Review (Fairfax) and Sydney Telegraph (News International) in Sydney, and the Sunday Independent, Irish Independent and Evening Herald (all INM) in Ireland.
