I have spent my career studying the intersection of technology, media, education, and how it can better people's lives. Currently, as VP of Digital Media at The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy I oversee all aspects of The National Campaign’s digital presence. I am a creator of the Campaign's Bedsider program which makes use of new media to change the reproductive health behaviors of young adults in the U.S. and which was proven to work in a ground-breaking study published in 2015. Previously, I used technology as a tool to teach about the history of the Holocaust and to motivate people to act to end contemporary genocide. In my second home of Athens, Greece, I have consulted on various projects for clients including the Athens Metro and museums of Greek history. I graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 1989 with a degree in Television, Radio, and Film and in 1993 earned a Master's degree in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation from Syracuse University's School of Education. I have an 14-year-old daughter and find inspiration from playing tennis, travel, sea kayaking in Greece, art, and a good book.
