Some of my side hustles:

Leader of a philanthropic giving circle advancing awesomeness in Washington, DC through $1,000 monthly grants funding arts, culture, and community projects, events, and ideas

The Multimedia Immersion

Founder and Director of the workshop that trained the past 5 White House Photographers, dozens of Pulitzer winners, and the world's leading photojournalists

Awesome Foundation

Treasurer and Director of the executive board steering the global Awesome Foundation's 90+ chapters from around the world in 20+ countries

President and founder of the Virginia Ave Dog Park partners association who are the community stewards of DC's largest public dog park in Capitol Hill and Navy Yard

Director for the Awesome Foundation's global convening of organization leaders from around the globe; I re-envisioned the event structure and content expanding it to focus on actionable results and shared content

Executive Director for the Society for News Design's 2011 convention in St. Louis which I won two SND President's awards for going above and beyond in the event planning and execution

From 2010-2011, I was appointed a Fellowship at the University of Missouri's Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute to research mobile reporting and content strategy, and product development for multi-platform news in the modern age

I was elected the youngest-ever director for the Online News Association's Board of Directors where I was the Secretary, and pioneered board transparency, the MJ Bear Fellowship for young journalists, and an emerging technology focus

Back when I lived in Florida, I helped organize a Bubble Flash Mob (back when that was a thing). We organized it through MySpace (seriously). It was pretty cool.
