I try to advance openness, justice, and connectivity.

TLDR:

I graduated from Wheaton College in 2017 with a double major in Math & Fine Arts, and minors in Physics and Computer Science. I had one year left in my dual degree, BE-granting program at Dartmouth College, and had been invited to subsequently begin PhD work there in Engineering.

I left that program to instead explore open design and innovation around the world as a Watson Fellow, and then enrolled at Yale SOM as a Silver Scholar.

 

That transition represents a change in thinking— a realization that our biggest challenges aren't material or technical, but permeate larger social, economic, and political systems.

Since then, I've been a Civic Digital Fellow, writing the International Trade Administration's first comprehensive tech strategy brief; a consultant to Brazil's first & largest impact VC fund via Yale's Program on Social Enterprise; a Fellow at the Boston Mayor's innovation and R&D lab; and since Fall '19, a Consultant to the social sector at Wellspring.

I've been on the internet in these places:

I wrote about creating an inclusive "future of work" for Next City

That came out of my work with the Boston Mayor's R&D team

 

I did an "alumni spotlight" interview with Coding it Forward

 

I wrote a blog post about my participation in Yale SOM's Silver Scholar program

As part of the Yale Inclusive Economic Development Lab, I helped make a podcast and took the lead on Episode 6

 

I'm a former Board member, Publisher, and CFO at YSoA's Paprika!, as well as an occasional contributor 

Core 77 Design Awards recognized my project, called "CO"

Coding it Forward interviewed Frankie and me about it

And it got my school excited, too
