tl;dr: I'm a freelance journalist with a decade’s experience creating content for leading media and technology organizations, from Glamour and Vanity Fair to Harry's and Google. Some outlets I’ve written for: New York Times, Washington Post Magazine, Marie Claire, Fast Company, Forbes, Business Insider, Philadelphia, Teen Vogue, Refinery29, SELF, Seventeen, Black Enterprise, Thrive, and HuffPo. I’m represented by Eliza Rothstein at InkWell Management.
These days: I write about innovation, history, 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’m focused on long-form nonfiction projects, along with select features reporting and editorial consulting. I live in New York City with my husband, Nate, and Havanese, Maeby, and a lot of World War II books.
In the past: In 2018, I left my post leading content and communications at the startup Jopwell to freelance and participate in a literary journalism residency at the Banff Centre with New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean. Upon joining Jopwell in 2014, 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, including Pinterest, Goldman Sachs, Lyft, LinkedIn, and the NBA.
I previously supported a team of Google engineers and NLP researchers on product localization and community initiatives throughout Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka; enjoyed a stint in customer experience at Harry’s; and worked at Condé Nast as assistant at Vanity Fair and a contributing editor at Glamour. I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pennsylvania, where I was a Benjamin Franklin Scholar and an apprentice to writers Kathryn Watterson and Stephen Fried.
