Zeega (2012-2014)

Head of Community and Content

I joined the team working on Zeega as Head of Community and Head of Content. Over the next three years, we advanced the rise of a new visual language mixing GIFs, photos, and videos.

 
 
 
 

As Head of Community, I taught students at Harvard, MIT, and Tufts how to use the Zeega platform. I organized events with the MIT Documentary Lab and the Tribeca Film Institute, and an exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

As Head of Content, my job was to discover new forms of storytelling with the Zeega platform. I created hundreds of interactive media projects, including Today in Zeega, a mobile first, interactive vertical video news series that anticipated the next generation of social news video.  Today in Zeega told the news of the day through the latest trending GIFs, images, and music on the web. The Today in Zeega format was distributed by NowThis News and emulated by news organizations across the web.
