I'm the Managing Editor of editorial at Shopify Studios, where I started a team to launch Founder Stories and profile an array of people who aren’t about business as usual. Most recently, I freelanced about creative responses to social challenges. Previously, I was a deputy editor at OZY, where I led the media start-up's 2016 presidential campaign coverage. I also oversaw editorial to support “The Contenders” TV series, which aired on PBS and the BBC with interviews from John McCain and Vice President Joe Biden.
Prior to that, I taught journalism, helped launch WSJ.Money magazine and spent eight months contributing research to The Wall Street Journal's “Waste Lands” series, a Pulitzer Prize finalist. My work has been published in Inc., Entrepreneur, Money, Psychology Today and, when I lived in the United Arab Emirates, The National. At SmartMoney, I was a Deadline Club award finalist following my investigation into close ties between certain financial companies and academic researchers.
I also blogged about social entrepreneurship for HuffPost after joining and mentoring a team of NYU Abu Dhabi students in the Hult Prize. President Bill Clinton announced our team was among three winners from around 4,000 applicants, and he later cited us in his “case for optimism” essay for TIME Magazine.
