I'm a freelance journalist with a decade of experience creating content for leading media and technology organizations, from Glamour and Vanity Fair to Harry's and Google. My work has also appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post Magazine, Marie Claire, Fast Company, Forbes, Business Insider, Teen Vogue, Refinery29, SELF, Philadelphia, Seventeen, Black Enterprise, Thrive, and HuffPo.
I write about work, innovation, and fascinating people/things, with a particular interest in illuminating experiences of individuals historically overlooked in media. Reporting pursuits have involved visits to Norwegian prisons, JDate, and the White House South Lawn. I recently returned from a literary journalism residency at the Banff Centre with New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean and am focused on a World War II espionage project, along with select features writing and editorial consulting. I’m represented by Eliza Rothstein at InkWell Management.
From late 2014 to early 2018, I led content and communications at Jopwell, where I founded and edited the diversity recruitment startup's award-winning digital magazine, The Well. I also oversaw media relations and developed custom content (e.g. sponsored profiles, thought leadership, racially diverse stock photography) for 35+ clients such as Pinterest, Goldman Sachs, Lyft, LinkedIn, and the NBA. Before that, I worked with a team of Google engineers and NLP researchers on product localization and community outreach initiatives across Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, I live in New York City with my husband, Nate, and Havanese, Maeby.
