I’m an MPP candidate at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, studying public policy.
Prior to grad school, I worked in population health strategy and operations at Evolent Health. Prior to that, I was in New York City, at Gradian Health Systems, a social enterprise working to improve the delivery of safe anesthesia everywhere; east Africa (based in Uganda), freelance writing, consulting, and 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.
