Welcome to my home page!
I'm a research, social media and communication professional based in Indianapolis.
For the past few years, I've been pursuing a Master of Science degree (expected graduation in May 2017) in Human-Computer Interaction at the IU School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. My work lies at the intersection of media, law, society and technology. I have a particular love for social computing, ubiquitous computing, digital journalism and design.
Before graduate school, I held a variety of roles at The Indianapolis Star. Most recently, I was an engagement producer and local network editor for IndyStar.com. I created and curated engaging content for the site and for its social media accounts. You may have read my Cheat Sheet columns each morning of top headlines and the most buzzworthy stories, or followed me on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere as "@heycori."
I consult on social media and communication strategies. I also have extensive experience as a news page designer, IT systems analyst, copy editor and reporter.
Are you also an art lover? I'm also known for my large acrylic paintings in an abstract expressionist style (and take commissions!). See a selection in a link at left.
When not at work, I might be wandering a museum, enjoying the breeze on a cafe patio, or cuddled on my couch with my two cats -- and, likely, also browsing Facebook on my phone and posting to Twitter and Instagram. But I'm also often back in Illinois visiting my large family, including my three adorable nieces.
