About

I help organizations and leaders find their voice and share their message.
And I strongly believe in the ability of science to make the world a better place.

My mission is to meet interesting people and experience new things. Wherever I am, I do my best to track down good music, food, and art, approaching life with curiosity and an open mind.

I completed my Master’s degree in Science Communication at Imperial College London, with a thesis exploring the intersection of secular mindfulness, smartphone apps, and neoliberalism.

I then spent some time in Japan, writing and podcasting at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, a position that built on my work as a writer and editor in London and Barcelona.

During the pandemic, I worked remotely for the Royal College of Pediatrics, writing about the consequences of the pandemic on young people. This work was immensely fulfilling.

Most recently, I’ve been working with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in New York. Here, I launched a new platform and print magazine to showcase the work of the foundation’s talented grantees.

Recurring themes throughout my work and personal projects include topics I find both interesting and important—inequality, mental fitness, and self-improvement, to name a few.

I have a background in management consulting where I worked as a business analyst for the C-suite of six multinationals. I also served as the right-hand man to a tech startup CEO.

I love to travel and have backpacked around the world on 7 trips spanning 3 years. On the road I like to work with valuable causes, spend time with trees, and get deep beneath the water.
