Listen to my podcast

I’m at the nexus of science, technology, and philanthropy, working with organizations and communities of practice to innovate, collaborate, and advance a shared vision of sustainability and equity for a more just and abundant future.

I manage editorial for the Digital Impact portfolio hosted by the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford PACS. Led by Lucy Bernholz and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Liquidnet, and Knight Foundation, Digital Impact improves digital culture and infrastructure by advocating the safe, ethical, and effective use of data.

At George Mason University, I managed editorial for a multimedia resource that earned a model program award from the US Department of Education. Later, I launched a comms program for a global information broker serving a network of 20K organizations in 40 countries. For three years, I worked with leading innovators in global philanthropy and social investment, managed editorial across agencies, continents and work cultures, and engaged in high level discussions with the United Nations, Ford Foundation, and OECD.

And at TechSoup, I led a team of experts to position the forum as a global resource, as well as a content partner for brands like Microsoft, Adobe, and Box.

And later, I designed a consumer portal and led a digital campaign for a national housing initiative, working alongside NYC Council Member Ritchie Torres and others to promote sustainable housing in the five boroughs and beyond. My work was featured in a comms textbook published by Routledge in 2016 and drew support from the likes of Senator Tammy Baldwin and “Star Trek” actor George Takei.

My series on the Stonewall Riots, described as “one of the best articles related to the uprising,” was praised by Oscar-nominated writer/playwright Larry Kramer, who called it “Excellent, very moving. It is nice to be seen in this way. It never happens!” The series has been cited in the Michigan Journal of Gender and Law, and in the critically-acclaimed book, Lavender and Red.

I’ve contributed to leading-edge publications, produced award-winning content, and worked with the UN to promote social good worldwide.

Continuing my 2015 talk at the International Conference on Social Media for Good, my forthcoming podcast will look at cities, social tech, and organizational culture through a remote work lens.
