I'm currently an Executive Producer at Refinery29 where I host and produce the iTunes top 10 podcast and weekly video series, Strong Opinions Loosely Held (SOLH). SOLH won a 2017 DigiDay Award for best podcast and was a 2017 Webby Honoree. Cool! It's also the fastest growing franchise at Refinery29.
Before launching SOLH, I spent two years scaling Refinery29's video content resulting in 500% increase in video views and increasing video production by 250%. Now, three out of 4 women on Facebook see the company's video content. But visibility comes with responsibility, of course. That's why I like to talk about creating a more inclusive media and pop culture landscape. I've done this most recently at MIT Media Lab, Harvard Law School, Savannah College of Art and Design and SxSW.
Prior to Refinery29, I was a Creative Director at Upworthy and a creative partner at Eileen Fisher. Outside of work, I am a Women in Technology Fellow at NYU School of Engineering. I'm also an "influencer": My US Copyright Office testimony helped win crucial exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, setting the stage for video to dominate across social platforms. My solo gallery show resulted in a US Copyright Office White paper on internet meme culture. I write a weekly newsletter - you can find it here.
