I’m passionate about creating an informed, engaged public.
I am the vice president of strategy and operations at ProPublica, a nonprofit newsroom producing investigative and accountability journalism in the public interest.
My work — across journalism, research, and product development — centers on listening to people, analyzing data, identifying patterns, and solving problems. As a media leader, I am inspired by efforts to refashion the news business to meet the needs and interests of communities while sustaining the journalists who create it.
I believe that playful, creative engagement is critical to developing communities where trust, respect, and collaborative problem-solving are possible. That’s why I’m a trustee with AwesomeNYC, the local Awesome Foundation chapter, and an active board member member of the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, where I co-organize paddle-in movie nights, concerts, and other cultural events on my favorite local Superfund site. I am an alternate representative for the club on the EPA’s Gowanus Canal Community Advisory Group.
As a journalist, I covered innovation and the environment for more than a decade. I continue to advocate for better science communication as a board member the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing and an adviser to MICRO — a startup that’s building a fleet of tiny science museums that make learning fun and accessible.
Also, I love riding my bicycle and exploring urban waterways around the world.
