We live in a time of rapid change.
I tell stories about what brought us to this present moment, and where we might go in the future.
I’m currently Editor at The Long Now Foundation, a San Francisco non-profit fostering long-term thinking and responsibility through diverse projects aiming to inspire, educate, and challenge our concepts of the future. I also do freelance writing, creative consulting, and video editing.
I was previously Head of Video at Timeline, a history magazine that connected the dots between the trending news of today and stories of the past. At Timeline, I managed an editorial team as we became the most successful history brand in the social video space, with videos garnering tens of millions of views. Prior to Timeline, I was part of the founding team of GoPop, an app for visual conversation that was acquired by BuzzFeed; and Zeega, a multimedia platform for inventing new forms of multimedia storytelling. I was a 2012-13 Fellow at metaLAB (at) Harvard, an idea foundry, knowledge-design lab, and production studio experimenting in the networked arts and humanities.
At Zeega, I pioneered two forms of social storytelling using the Zeega platform that anticipated the next generation of interactive, multimedia communication.
My visual storytelling work simplifies historical narratives for mass appeal while using a distinct audiovisual style inspired and enabled by the web's remix culture.
