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 neoliberal ideology.

Since then I’ve been writing and podcasting at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) in Japan, a position that builds on my work as a writer and editor at various publications.

Common themes throughout my work and personal projects include topics I find both interesting and important - climate change, mental fitness, and diversity of thought, to name a few.

I have a background in management consulting where I worked as a business analyst for the C-suite of multinationals. I’ve also spent time working at a tech startup and an ethical creative studio.

I love to travel and have lived in 7 countries, as well as backpacking on 5 trips totaling 2.5 years. On the road I like to work with valuable causes, spend time with trees, and get deep beneath the water.
