I am a freelance writer with a focus on the policies, systems, and technologies that help communities thrive.
With a background in international studies, I have pursued a broad range of experiences that inform my understanding of policy decisions and how they affect social systems. I understand the power of a compelling narrative in thought leadership, and use that to stoke conversation around innovative ideas that promote community wellbeing.
I am based in Washington, D.C. as a technology reporter for Mobility Lab, a research and advocacy organization in transportation demand management that looks at how to move more people in smarter ways. My writing engages new audiences with the concepts of TDM and how this, as well as other urban planning concepts, encouraging people to consider and learn about the policies that affect their everyday lives.
I also work on communications for Knowledge Commons DC, a volunteer-run organization that provides free classes on an infinity of topics that connect D.C. residents with their community and the resources the city has to offer.
