Hello! I'm working to improve the technology that controls our shared visual experiences.

I am a former photojournalist, lifelong treasure hunter. My work focuses on how photography shapes society—how we see, and feel seen.

I have dived deep into the art and science of visual storytelling: its diversity, its challenges, and its powerful influence on our perceptions of reality. For this work I draw upon my own journey, supporting era-defining cultural moments at Instagram, National Geographic, and the Open Society Foundations.

Fun fact: I have the unique distinction of running the world’s two largest organizational social media accounts between 2012-2018, during a pivotal time when platforms scaled from human-powered content discovery to algorithmic personalization for the first time.

Today, you can find me in research and development with Camera and Photos at Apple. I serve on the board of the Magnum Foundation and as affiliate fellow with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence.
