From 2005 to 2015, I served as Editor-in-Chief and Community Manager for the Developer Shed Network. Often referred to as “The Shed”, the network consisted of 14 websites and related forums, covering all facets of programming, web design, web development, and Internet Marketing/Search Engine Optimization (SEO). While there, I managed a team of 200+ freelance writers and four in-house editors. In addition, I worked closely with the Ad Operations team and programming staff to create custom-tailored advertising units and content for companies such as Sun Microsystems, IBM, Oracle, and Full Sail University. I also published two weekly newsletters with a subscriber base of 1,000,000 and managed content for 7 websites that published 5 days a week. As a Community Manager, I oversaw the daily moderation of 7 forums with a combined user-base of 7,000,000 members.
I have also worked as a freelance editor and copyeditor for a variety of publications and websites, covering a broad range of topics, including fiction, technology, and lifestyle material.
