I am a writer, researcher, and editor living in New York City. Three of my other titles are wife, mother of two, and co-founder of OddFellows Ice Cream Company in Brooklyn.  

My editorial interests focus on the intersection of world affairs, popular culture, and global trends. My writing and research have appeared in print, broadcast, and online media. I have worked as a culture reporter in Taiwan, as a research analyst in Kosovo, and as an international flight attendant based in Chicago.

I am a graduate of Northwestern University (BS in Journalism), the University of Chicago (MA in Social Science) and the New School in New York City (MS in International Affairs).
