I have help activists make change. Over the past 17 years, I have worked on political campaigns at the local and national level, trained activists, and created media-centered advocacy strategies for clients all over the world.
I worked on my first presidential campaign while still a high school student in New Jersey. As New Media Operations Manager for President Obama's pathbreaking 2008 campaign, I managed logistics for the 60-person New Media Department at campaign headquarters in Chicago. My current pro-bono project, Unstoppables.us, creates free media that informs and inspires Resistance groups working for change in the midterms.
In my twenties I traveled the globe from Norway to Lebanon training activists to strategically use social media.
Now I create bespoke advocacy strategies for activists using media to make change. At Harmony Labs, for whom I consult as Impact Design Advisor, I create customized Impact Plans for data privacy activists in Colombia, Brazil, and the US, helping them identify clear goals, metrics, and plans of action for their campaigns.

As co-founder of the Digital Activism Research Project at the University of Washington in 2012, I designed and managed teams of grad students to compile the first public data sets of over 1,500 digital activism campaigns from 151 countries.
I am also editor of the book Digital Activism Decoded: The New Mechanics of Change, published in 2010.
