I’m an MPP candidate at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, focusing on International and Governmental Affairs.
Prior to grad school, I worked in Washington DC at Evolent Health, a population health strategy and operations firm; in New York City, at Gradian Health Systems, a social enterprise working to improve the delivery of safe anesthesia everywhere; in east Africa (based in Uganda), as a freelance journalist, traveling throughout the region to find stories, take pictures, and generally just have a good time. Among other outlets, I was published at The Atlantic, Newsweek, and The Daily Beast (and, oddly enough, Marie Claire Australia’s print edition). Clips.
