Dedicated to changing the future of media through journalistic practice and human-centered design.
You can find me at PRX, where I use human-centered design as a framework for helping podcasters around the world identify and reach new audiences.
I learned most of what I know about bringing an entrepreneurial and design-oriented mindset to creative work at Matter Ventures, where I got my start as a 2017 Google News Lab Fellow. At Matter, I ran our external media strategy and assisted with the sourcing and training of early-stage, mission-driven media startups.
A former reporter and editor, my pivot to media innovation began at New York University's Studio 20 program, where, as a Master's candidate, I worked with Vox.com's off-platform storytelling team in a project aimed at understanding how media organizations can prepare their newsrooms to impart valuable, trustworthy information in platform-native formats. You can read about my findings—where else—on Facebook.
Also at NYU, as the project manager for a collaboration with The Wall Street Journal, I lead a 12-person team in an effort to research, prototype, and test new ways to reach younger, less financially literate readers. I honed my video and web production skills through the creation of Finding Sanctuary, winner of the 2017 CPOY Award of Excellence for Online Multimedia Storytelling.
