Work

Just before my senior year, I left Princeton University to build Branch Media, which was backed by the founders of Twitter and Buzzfeed. Our company designed experimental social products, such as Branch and Potluck, that aimed to foster more thoughtful conversations on the internet. Branch's software was embedded within New York Times articles, used retired Army Generals, and even broke big news about Apple's iPhone design.

In January 2014, Facebook bought Branch. While at Facebook, I worked on the development of new consumer-facing products and features. In August 2015, I left Facebook to accept a role in President Obama's Administration.

Starting in September 2015, I served as the White House's first Director of Product. Of the projects that I created and led, my favorite work included:

As a political appointee, I left the White House in January 2017.

Personal

Originally from Santa Monica, CA, I have lived in New York, London, and Washington D.C. 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.
