Erica Berger

Mixing mischief, magic, and media.

I'm an NYC and LA based writer and digital director turned entrepreneur who's active in the journalism, media, tech 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 building Catchpool, while also writing for Fast Company, Quartz, and more. I've spent the last 4 years working on 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 ambassador for the Thousand Network in NYC, a StartingBloc fellow, and am one of Forbes 30 Under 30 in Media. 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. When not on the Internet, I'm on a plane, surfing, hiking, dancing, cooking or on my yoga mat.
