THOMSON REUTERS

At Thomson Reuters, I was the first staff-level hire on the design team for the "Reuters Next" initiative, an attempt to completely reimagine and rebuild Reuter's consumer-facing news products.

 

Reuters Next Website
What does a news site look like when it abandons exclusive "verticals" for flexible streams, and privileges the consumption experience over traditional ad units? I helped Reuters answer those questions and more.

Mixing hundreds of human-curated and completely-automated content streams with detailed market data and specialized search tools, I helped create iPhone and iPad apps that were featured as "Editor's Choice" in the app store.
