Massachusetts-native, back in the USA after four years abroad in Cambridge, England. Living in St. Petersburg now (Florida, not Russia), traveling the world, and reading a lot.
Curiosity. Adventure. Travel, Innovation, Design, Media, Economics – and all of their links.
I’m a writer, researcher, and communications strategist with over a decade of experience working in the tech sector, primarily with startups/social enterprises and nonprofits. Now, I work at the intersection of tech, development, media, and policy to create/transform/and support innovations and innovation ecosystems that make places better for everyone. I love places, and I love ideas – their future, their connectivity, their cultures. I think about how places and ideas develop and how people experience and are influenced by them.
Before living in St Pete, I lived in the Boston suburbs (hometown), Miami, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and (of course) Cambridge, England. I’ve travelled to and/or worked with companies across the U.S., South America, Europe, and Africa. I’m an alumna of the London School of Economics and Political Science, the University of Miami, and Startup Institute.
I made this blog for journalism class when I was student in 2009. Since then, it has evolved.
This is my personal record of my explorations..
