Journalist & Technologist

Overview

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 and the future of storytelling. I like to help tech and editorial teams communicate better so that cool new things can get built for newsrooms.

I have 5 years of experience working across editorial, social media/audience development, and product management — both in newsrooms and at quick-moving startups in San Francisco and New York. I’ve launched verticals, founded online communities, built and shipped mobile and desktop SAAS 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, New Scientist, The Huffington Post, and Psychology Today, among others.

In 2016, I founded a community for women in emerging technology called Women Futurists Collective. I've also completed a very nerdy research fellowship on transhumanism at Duke University.

A few years ago, I founded the HuffPost Girls in STEM Mentorship Program. I continue to stay involved with mentorship and the science/tech/art community in NYC. Recently, I became a mentor for Columbia University's startup accelerator, Almaworks.
