Just before my senior year, I left Princeton University to build Branch Media, which Facebook bought in January 2014. Our company designed experimental social products, such as Branch and Potluck, that aimed to foster more thoughtful conversations on the internet. In August 2015, I left Facebook to accept a role in President Obama's Administration.
Since September 2015, I have been serving as the White House's first Director of Product. Of the projects that I have created and led, my favorite work includes:
As a political appointee, I will leave the White House in January 2017.
Originally from Santa Monica, CA, I now live in Washington D.C., after spending four years in New York City and London. I am twenty-six years old and a proud donor to KCRW, Doctors Without Borders, Coalition for Queens, and Mr. Fulcher's African-American literature class at Santa Monica High School (my alma mater).
For a recent photo of me, this headshot was taken in November 2016.
