Something on your mind? Shoot me a message!
I’m a tech, events, media, travel and tea enthusiast based in New York City who builds memorable experiences though event planning and project management. As the founder of Hackonauts, I organize internal and external innovation competitions around the world for clients that include hackNY, The Feast Conference and Yahoo! Developer Network.
I helped launch Think Beyond Plastic, an international innovation competition and conference for entrepreneurs working on solutions to the plastic pollution crisis. I’ve also written for and helped seed TechCrunch‘s GreenTech section (read my posts here).
An alumna of the graduate Studio 20 program at New York University, I studied innovation in digital journalism and served as the program’s graduate assistant, maintaining the blog, fielding questions from prospective students, and helping with grant proposals. I also worked with PBS’ channel Thirteen to develop a show and online presence focused on New York City’s start-up scene.
I was executive board member of Tech@NYU, an organization dedicated to the advancement of tech entrepreneurship. We hosted NYU Startup Week, among other events designed to introduce students to startups. I curated Tech@NYU’s weekly newsletter, which is part of the global StartupDigest network.
My background is in digital media, including video, mapping, strategy and product management.
I’ve worked on digital side of newspapers, where I helped shape online strategy, created multimedia content, trained reporters on how to use geocoding as a storytelling tool, and worked with the marketing department to build out a mobile site and interactive contests and alerts. I also worked for NBC Olympics.
