I’m currently associate editor of Fast Company’s design vertical, Co.Design. I cover design, business, tech, and their intersections. I was previously editorial project manager at AIGA, the professional association for design; and editor of Design Observer, founded by renowned designers Michael Bierut and Jessica Helfand. This past year, I served as a judge for the 2018 Making Vinyl Packaging Awards, and as a mentor for Aspire to Her.
I’m available for freelance writing commissions. My work has previously been published in AIGA Eye on Design, Design Observer, and Fast Company, to name a few.
I studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and History at Michigan State University. This has given me a keen understanding of art and design, sleuth-like research skills, and the ability to examine creative culture within larger historic and societal trends. And then I write about it. Brooklyn-based by way of Detroit; I say “pop,” not “soda.”
