I work at Foursquare as a user experience researcher and an anthropologist of online communities. I've previously worked at Twitter and Meetup.
My interests center around the ways new technologies shape and are shaped by contemporary culture.
I aim to create experiences that feel fun and comfortable. New technology done right can feel like coming home.
After growing up in eight countries, my interest in anthopology was natural. Once I began formalizing my ideas about the world around me, I realized that the most interesting cultural trends are not happening on idyllic remote islands; they are happening on laptops and phones.
