I am a journalist passionate about using data-driven storytelling to propel innovation and creative thinking in music and media. I cover the intersection between music and technology as a contributor for Forbes, and have also written about media and entertainment for Synchtank, the Harvard Political Review, the Juilliard Journal and the Harvard Leadership Review. As a public speaker, I have led conversations on everything from contextual playlisting to creative startup accelerators to female empowerment in entertainment at conferences like FastForward, Sónar+D, SXSW, Hacking Arts, SheTek and the inaugural Virtual Music Summit. Beyond writing, I major in statistics and minor in music at Harvard College, and regularly record YouTube covers of my favorite hip-hop and funk artists.

I joined Music Biz Besties because some of the highest-quality opportunities and relationships I have encountered in the music industry have arisen through networks built by, about and for women.
