Erica Berger

I'm an NYC based writer and digital director turned entrepreneur who's active in the tech, journalism, media and social good spaces.

I nerd out around international relations, resource management (natural and cultural), the future of news, and on how technology is constantly changing our world.

Right now, I'm jamming on a new project called Catchpool, while also writing for Fast Company. I've spent the last 4 years building product, digital strategy, and partnerships for NewsCorp, The Week, Storyful, and The Economist. In 2012, I started the Mileage (media) newsletters with some amazing friends, which means I like building community between LA and NYC with 2462(miles), London and NYC with 3460(miles) and SF and NYC with 2905(miles). Most recently, I joined the board of NPR's new initiative, Generation Listen. In other words--I like supporting and developing products that connect great people and improve our understanding of the world around us.

I'm the NYC Sandbox Network Ambassador, a StartingBloc fellow, and am one of Forbes 30 Under 30. I moved to NYC in 2009 after adventures in Chicago (born and raised), Los Angeles (where I attended USC and worked in environmental doc film and indie music), and Europe.
