I'm a journalist, content strategist, and troublemaker campaigning for a more chiller world. I research, think, talk, and write about cities, emojis, tech, language, data, maps, mushrooms, and other semi-related topics. My work might vary widely but it's all a protracted temper tantrum against my generation's nihilist streak.

I've written for Slate, WIRED, Print Magazine, Next City, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, Fast Company, UntappedCities, TheDateReport, Nerve.com, Yahoo Travel, the LA Times, and other publications.

My work has been featured by New York Times en Español, The Washington Post's The Lily, the New York Magazine Approval Matrix, Glam, the Today Show, Dame, Buzzfeed, CityLab, Next City, PBS, Digg, Curbed, eleven major publications in France, Fast Company (here, here, and here), and mentioned in the New Yorker.  I've worked as a researcher/fixer for The New York Times and as a content consultant for RollingStone.com and the Art Institute of Chicago. I've spoken and conducted workshops at Pepsi, Barnard College Young Women's Leadership Institute, Emojicon, Digital Dumbo, California College of the Arts, and elsewhere.
