Women Futurists Collective
WFC is a community and visibility platform for women futurists — for anyone who enjoys reading about, discussing, and building emerging technology. The group includes over 500 women scientists, engineers, artists, entrepreneurs, activists, and students engaged in thoughtful conversations around what's to come. We host regular meet-ups all over the country and publish a magazine called On The Future.

Matched 500+ girls with female scientists and engineers in mentorship pairs, and built a dialogue on- and off-site around issues women face in STEM.

Love in the Time of Cyborgs
On journalism crowdfunding platform Beacon Reader, I launched a writing project around the future of technology and human evolution, or transhumanism. I raised $1,000 and received recurring monthly donations from 30 readers. Unfortunately, the platform shut down in 2016.
I’ve spoken to groups about news & social media, storytelling on platforms, and emerging tech in media. I also speak at women in STEM events about alternative science careers and STEM mentorship. Here’s a presentation I gave last year at NYU's Ada Lovelace Day, their annual event for celebrating women in STEM.
