Who Am I?
Though he was born and raised in Philadelphia, Corey grew up on the internet. It’s where he learned the benefits of self-expression, the value found in open discourse and the strength of participating and sharing within a community. He wants to educate everyday users about the risks, benefits, and implications of their actions online. Corey has a firm belief that clear and accessible user education is key to helping people understand and care about their digital rights, and the foundation needed to close the digital divide.
In the summer of 2015, Corey relocated to Eugene, Oregon. After 6 months working as an independent contractor, Corey accepted an Associate level position at Palo Alto Software, working on CRO through short sprint a/b testing and long term analysis of site performance. In this role, Corey is also responsible for managing affiliate marketing relationships on site and off.
Corey joined the Strategic Marketing staff of the nonprofit Penn Medicine in 2013. At Penn, Corey develops patient education material through a combination of webchats, paid and organic search optimization and social media content, community management, blog posts and email marketing. In this role, Corey has the responsibility of explaining complex digital marketing strategy internally—mostly to medical and administrative staff but to development and program leadership as well.
After completing a B.A. in Communications in 2011 from Temple University, Corey was awarded the 2012-13 International Media Law and Policy Fellowship at the Center for Global Communications Studies—a project of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School of Communications. During his time there, he relaunched and grew their policy blog, the Media Wire, and helped establish its online presence through a series of interviews with visiting experts. In addition to technical and administrative duties, he also contributed to the Media Wire’s weekly ICT news roundups.
Corey has also written and edited content for The Netizen Report, a weekly newsletter about free speech online and universal access activism—produced and translated by Global Voices Online: Advocacy. This work gave Corey the opportunity to hone his skills at communicating technical and complex internet freedom issues for a lay-user audience.
