Independent researcher + strategist
Civic media enthusiast, bicycle commuter, experimental cook, wannabe digital fabricator, infrequent pianist, podcast junkie, and tupperware fanatic. Above all, a West Coast girl at heart.
I specialize in qualitative research and fieldwork, prototyping and implementation, and various forms of storytelling. My domain expertise includes civic engagement and the sharing economy. I am flexible with limited resources, and I have cultivated and grown initiatives that continue to flourish. I am passionate about building frameworks that empower people to be advocates for themselves.
Previous lives: SF Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation • MIT Center for Civic Media • Journalism Accelerator • The Rapidian • Portland Community Media • Peace Corps • M.Sc. from Comparative Media Studies @ MIT
