The smartest people in the world struggle to describe what they do
—and why it matters.
That’s why you need an ideas editor.
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.
Translating dense topics into accessible language:
Helping people work out what they want to say, helping them say it as clearly as possible, and then getting as many people to engage with it as possible: ideas, execution, and distribution.

We need to build long-term thinking and accountability into the decision-making process.

Fashion law is a little bit like the Wild West. There’s a lot of potential, but the rules can seem convoluted and vague at best. Protecting a brand or even a single design involves intellectual property, copyrights, trademarks, and patents.
