About Me

Heidi DeVriesI am an experienced multimedia journalist with knowledge management and content management experience.

I currently oversee Web content for a New York Times-owned newspaper in Florida where I produce and manage interactive projects for online use. Because I’m seen as a Web and social media guru, reporters and editors with questions about online content in the newsroom are often told to “ask Heidi.”

I’m also currently a student at the University of Central Florida studying journalism and political science. As such, I’m very interested in the future of news gathering and disseminating and how multimedia and convergence journalism will change the way I do my job.

I love to cook and I’ve won prizes in a couple different small-scale cooking contests and I love to try new recipes (especially ones that my picky eater of a fiance will try). I game in a variety of capacities – RPGs and fitness games on my XBOX, puzzle games on my DS, Rift on my PC and D&D (4E and Pathfinder) on the tabletop. Heck, I also like board games and interactive games – I’m up for anything. I’m also a Kickstarter junkie and I love supporting interesting projects there.
