I’m a New York-based journalist focused on digital media innovation and the future of storytelling. I like to help tech and editorial teams get along so awesome new things can get built for newsrooms. I also write about science and technology, and run a very cool community for women futurists.
I’m a New York-based journalist and product manager focused on digital media innovation. I get excited about building, experimenting with, and evangelizing the use of new technologies in newsrooms. Currently I work as an editorial and product consultant for digital media companies and tech startups.
I have 5 years of experience working across editorial, social media/audience development, and product management — both in newsrooms and at quick-moving tech startups in San Francisco and New York. I’ve launched verticals, founded online communities, built and shipped mobile and desktop applications, and have been part of a team with a successful exit (Feb. 2017).
My academic background is in evolutionary biology, psychology, and neuroscience. That means I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the large-scale systems that drive the natural world, and how they extend to the technology we’re building. I’m a fan of the scientific method, design thinking, and first-principles thinking as approaches to problem-solving and experience design.
I spent 2 years working as a science editor at The Huffington Post, and I continue to write about science, tech, and the future. I’ve written for The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Quartz, New Scientist, The Huffington Post, and Psychology Today, among others. I've also completed a science journalism fellowship on transhumanism at Duke University.
I'm committed to increasing the amount of diversity in STEM and futurism. In 2016, I founded a community and visibility platform for women in emerging technology called Women Futurists Collective. A few years prior, I founded the HuffPost Girls in STEM Mentorship Program. I continue to stay involved with mentorship and the science/tech/art community in NYC and recently, I became a mentor for Columbia University's startup accelerator, Almaworks.
