At Boston.com, I wore many hats as a product manager, all of them awesome.
BDCwire was the Globe's first WordPress site, and its first vertical. As the product manager, I had the vision to lead the small team that conceived it, named it, developed and designed it, marketed the launch, and hired the staff. Our documentation and designs led directly to the successful launch of two other verticals. My clips are here.
User-generated content (or UGC) was also an important part of the Boston.com brand. I spearheaded the move to a mobile-friendly, responsive UGC platform, managed the product side of Boston.com's comments and forums, developed new features, and added a metrics dashboard to the back end.
RadioBDC is Boston's online streaming alt-rock radio station. As part of the management team, I made experimental products like The Social Countdown (sadly, it was cool before its time), made sure Live in the Lab and other events went off without a hitch, and produced live coverage, photos and blog posts at events like Boston Calling and the Life is Good Festival. I also occasionally went on the radio to chit chat with Adam XII and Julie Kramer.
"It has an edge to it"
Poynter.org did a story about BDCwire when we launched, explaining how it would attempt to fill the gap Boston's alt-weekly, the Phoenix, and alt-rock station, WFNX, left behind.
