I have official and unofficial backgrounds in international affairs, studio art, music, human rights, writing, and journalism. I am, however, most passionate about digital media. I wrote my first master’s thesis on political dissent through social media, and am writing my second on Youtube and the business of influencer marketing. I am in love with pop culture, but I also follow tech trends. Essentially, I devour all things digital and social, and the internet is my playground.
I've got a Journalism Masters, an Advanced Business Certification and an M.A. in Human Rights, all from Columbia University, and a bachelors in Media, Culture and Communication from New York University with a minor in Studio Art. I have worked with organizations such as UNICEF and Amnesty International, in communications and marketing. I have also implemented successful social strategies, overseen web analytics, and designed UX and CMS. I'm a classically trained singer and pianist, have travelled to over 30 countries, and I enjoy a good pun.
