As OpenIDEO's storytelling fellow, I bring community stories to life. In addition to launching story collections, I design content strategy to support everything from social media to business development. Sometimes, I write for the IDEO blog.
As communications manager, I spun public policy into multimedia narratives. I edited or created all content, designed internal and external comms, and collaborated with media and research partners on stories for an international audience.
I developed Walk in My Shoes, a digital storytelling workshop for immigrant and refugee teen girls. I was also assistant producer on KALW's student documentary series on immigration, "Waking up From the American Dream."
Jill of all trades. I did a stint as managing editor for a d.school affiliated social movement; wrote a $7 million USAID proposal on Nigerian agriculture; pitched, produced, and copywrote pieces for Gilt City, HuffPo, TimeOut Boston, and more.
Built the first communications strategy for MIT’s largest inter-departmental lab. Wrote spotlights on researchers and projects; led comms team on multimedia projects; geeked out about working in Frank Gehry’s crazy spaceship.
I bring order to chaos and turn carbon into diamonds.
I've been writing since I was five and editing since I was eleven. Started from the bottom (idle poetry and reviewing conference papers for my economist father), now we here: an MFA in Creative Writing and launching successful communications and storytelling programs for design companies, NGOs, and institutes of higher education.
