I'm Millie Tran, a journalist, editor, and strategist. I'm currently the Global Growth Editor at The New York Times, where I sit at the intersection of news, strategy, and data.
Most recently, I was Director of Global Adaptation at BuzzFeed, leading a team of editors and producers around the world to share the best of BuzzFeed across languages, platforms, and formats. I was also a founding member of the team that launched the award-winning BuzzFeed News app, as well as the creator of the BuzzFeed News newsletter.
My experience in media spans editorial, product, data, tech, marketing, and strategy at a variety of organizations such as the American Press Institute, the Council on Foreign Relations, and National Journal — but always rooted in media and journalism with an obsession on connecting audiences with great editorial content and products.
I was born in Vietnam, grew up in California, studied global studies and geography at UCLA, and now live in New York.
