Maybe you’ve seen me covering a protest on MSNBC or interviewing newsmakers for The Today Show.

SPOTLIGHT ON ALEXIS OHANIAN
Alexis Ohanian, once called “the Mayor of the Internet” since he co-founded Reddit, is taking his entrepreneurial drive to innovate what he considers an untapped market.
Looking for a moderator? Keynote speaker? I love that stuff. I’ve hosted live conversations with actress Viola Davis, panels at SXSW and moderated a healthcare debate between Senator Barbara Boxer and former Speaker Newt Gingrich.
