I'm an operations lead in NYC tech with a previous life as an academic philosopher. I live in Brooklyn, grew up in Austin, with detours in Scotland, Tokyo, and most recently Pittsburgh. My PhD work examined the Philosophy of Friction, which is in no way related to my love of coffee and cooking.
I currently work at Emissary, an NYC venture-backed startup focusing on connecting experts with people who need them. At Emissary, I work in the intersection of operations, growth, and product to manage one side of a two-sided marketplace. I've also made significant contributions in product design, user research, and comprehensive analytics.
Prior to Emissary (and between graduate programs), I co-founded MedicalPlexus, a medical professional networking site. I built the front-end infrastructure, guided product development, and developed partnerships with hospitals in Boston, including MGH, Brigham and Women's, and The Scheie Eye Institute.
I used to be a philosophy PhD Student at the University of Pittsburgh. My work focused on the knitting together of scientific models that dominated at very different scales (e.g., time or distance).
Prior to that, I completed an M.Phil at St Andrews on the Foundations of Mathematics, and I received an A.B. from Harvard in Philosophy of Mathematics, where my Senior Thesis was on Finite Model Theory.
