Hi! I'm an editor and facilitator born in Melbourne, Australia and based in New York. 

Currently the Ideas Editor at Quartz and formerly the Editor of Kinfolk magazine, I have fused my background in lifestyle journalism with my passion for emerging technology. I bring a quality-of-life focus to the future's most pressing topics and translate dense, academic subjects into engaging content. I have edited New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling books, concepted innovative digital projects, and led award-winning teams of journalists and designers. 

Aside from editing and writing, I'm a public speaker, workshop facilitator, and panel moderator. I’ve spoken about blockchain at the UN, facilitated cross-council sessions on future-proofing technology for the World Economic Forum, MC’d the AI stage at Web Summit, and presented on evolutionary psychology at Creative Mornings. Offstage, I am also a business consultant who helps future-thinking companies speak to their audience—and each other—in a language they understand.

I am also a member of the WEF’s Future of Computing council, focusing on quantum computing and the long-term impact of supercomputing on both industry and society.

I love a good chat.
