Hello! I'm a data analyst & writer based in Brooklyn. I'm also pursuing personal projects across poetry & technology. Currently, I am the Senior Director of Data & Finance at Rethink Food, whose mission is to create a more sustainable and equitable food system. Previously, I worked at The New York Times as a senior manager of data analytics. Before that, I worked at the Federal Reserve and studied Economics & Political Science at Wellesley College.
