Introduction
As an experienced writer and editor, I founded Prose Media (www.prosemedia.com) to help build corporate and nonprofit brands through high-quality written content. 

I also founded and manage a nonprofit initiative, CourseWorld (www.courseworld.org), the first online education site for the arts and humanities.

I was an Editor-in-Chief at Google, overseeing internal news for 20k employees worldwide. Most recently, I held the post of Director of Communications & Executive Speechwriter at Endeavor—a $30M entrepreneurship nonprofit with offices in 17 countries.

I have written a tech humor column for Forbes.com and have published two books, Inside New York (a top-selling guidebook) and The Art of Bicycling, a poetry anthology. Most recently I have written for The Wall Street Journal, Fortune/CNN Money, Reader's Digest, and Psychology Today.

While getting my MFA in Writing from Columbia, where I funded my tuition through an online bookselling venture, I read poetry submissions at The New Yorker and was managing editor of Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art. Previously, I studied literature at Oxford (4.0) and graduated from Tufts in 2003 with Highest Honors in English for a thesis (230pp.) on Joyce, Proust, and theories of personality. I founded and directed eFundraise.org, a social enterprise for nonprofit fundraising.

Specialties: Content creation; editorial management; marketing; entrepreneurship; emerging markets.

Personal interests: Literature; tech; tennis; film; music; online education.
