Intro


SCROLL DOWN

Intro


I'm a business generalist in tech who had a previous life as an academic philosopher.  I live in NYC, grew up in Austin, and have lived 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.

Work


Work


I currently work at Emissary, an NYC venture-backed startup focusing on connecting experts with people who need them. At Emissary, I do everything on the business side of things, but have focused on customer development, marketing, and technical analytics. I've also contributed to product design and incorporating user feedback. 

 

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.

Academics


Academics


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.

In my free time, I drink coffee in local shops or travel to far away cities (and drink coffee in their shops).  Sometimes I'm cooking; sometimes I'm listening to podcasts; often both.
