I am currently a multimedia journalist in San Francisco. While at Penn, I pursued degrees in Gender, Sexuality, & Women's Studies and Philosophy. I received the Lynda Hart Prize in Sexuality Studies in 2014 for my research on sex education in Sweden, which I completed during a semester abroad in Stockholm. I also co-authored a paper on forced marriage with Fels Institute of Government professor Deirdre Martinez, which would later be published in the anthology Montesinos' Legacy: Defining and Defending Human Rights for Five Hundred Years.

After graduation, I moved to Los Angeles to work for VICE Media, where I would eventually become a senior editor. My background in the humanities gave me the tools early in my career to formulate strong research questions, deeply investigate those questions, and synthesize many sources into a single piece of writing. In particular, my senior thesis—which focused on gendered magazines, comparing the feature wells of publications like Marie Claire and ELLE with GQ and Esquire—trained me to research and write with clarity at length, and the combination of philosophy and policy-related courses provided the theoretical groundwork to write about a variety of issues in college and beyond. My journalistic work has been deeply influenced by my background in gender studies, including stories on redesigning the speculumtechnological advances to breast pumps, the practice of placental encapsulationcommercial surrogacy, and the world's first and only museum dedicated to menstruation. I now live in San Francisco and work for Wired, where I write and edit stories about technology.
