With over 10 years of experience in editorial and communications-centric roles, I understand how to employ language both tactically and poetically.

With over 10 years of experience in editorial and communications-centric roles, I understand how to employ language both tactically and poetically.

In my current role as Director of Creative Resources at The Creative Independent, I am editor of our Guides and Tips series, in addition to editing special projects—such as our zines, our How to use the internet mindfully publication, and our Conditions series. In all of my editing work for TCI, I collaborate closely with each writer to narrow their focus and approach, and take the time necessary to ensure the finished piece is clear, compelling, and true to the author's intention.

In my past role directing Kickstarter's editorial initiatives, I led a team of seven and was responsible for overseeing the organization's vast editorial ecosystem, including on-site features, creator interviews, blog posts, newsletters, and social media. Before Kickstarter, I was part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's Communications team, where I wrote and edited the institution's social communications, collaborated on multimedia content and PR initiatives, and wrote for Open Space, SFMOMA's blog.

As a writer, I tend to explore topics such as the evolution of ideas, networked culture, and what the future will be like.
