The Quartz Obsession

The Quartz Daily Brief

Other Stuff


In college I worked as a reporter for the Seattle-based digital news site Crosscut while completing a fellowship with the Reynolds Journalism Institute. At RJI, I helped create Opt In, a free tool to help newsrooms design and manage effective newsletters. In a series of articles documenting the research, I created a cheat sheet for newsletter analytics, explored how newsletter metrics translate into publisher revenue, and explained how to optimize a newsletter’s performance through testing and measurement. I spoke about this research and my current role as a writer of the Quartz Daily Brief and Obsession as a guest panelist at CUNY J-school in January 2018.

The Quartz App

Quartz's new app puts the entire global economy in your pocket.

It's an ongoing conversation about the news, sort of like texting. We'll send you messages, photos, GIFs, and links, and you can decide when you're interested in reading more. Each session lasts just a few minutes, so it's perfect for the train, elevator, grocery store line, or wherever you have a spare moment.

And here's the secret about our little news bot: It's written by humans! Smart journalists who want to keep you informed and entertained.

It's pretty simple. Here are some other features:
• Notifications that are relevant and fun. You decide which alerts to receive, and we won't buzz your phone unless it's really, really important.
• No more news? Relax. We'll give you a quiz or something else to do.
