Angela recently served as Tablet Editor at McClatchy Newspapers in Washington, D.C. She worked on mobile storytelling, design and production for mobile apps for thirty newspapers across the U.S., including The Miami Herald and The Kansas City Star.
Angela’s career has led her through many fields and corners of the world. After graduating from university, she moved to New York, where she worked at MoMA, Polo Ralph Lauren, Men’s Health, and Sony Music Publishing. She also started a nonprofit, Supersnack, which raised more than $150,000 for AIDS charities in New York and Washington and produced benefit events with performers including John Oliver and Aziz Ansari. She earned her master’s in journalism at the Missouri School of Journalism and then moved to Hilton Head, S.C., where she was the online editor at The Island Packet. While there, she won a South Carolina Press Association award for social media engagement, and also once hosted a live alligator in her cubicle. She moved to Cape Town, South Africa in 2014, and then arrived in Vancouver later that same year. Angela currently writes for Previously.tv and edits academic books for Palgrave Macmillan. She is a master’s candidate at the Centre for Digital Media, where she intends to apply the principles of gaming and interactivity to the consumption of news on mobile devices.

In fact, if you type aweregs into an Afrikaans-English translator, if it can find the word at all, it may return the results “off-key” or “hobbit.” That’s how truly aweregs this word is: not only can’t we translate it, we can’t even agree on whether it’s an adjective or a noun. (Spoiler: It’s an adjective.)
I’m sure I had a point. Oh yes, it’s this: Every time I read a cliché in a piece of writing, I think to myself, “I wish the writer had found an off-key hobbit to edit this.”

“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
