Do you work for TED?
Yes! I’ve been a proud member for TED’s Editorial Team since 2015. I transcribe, fact-check, edit and proofread transcripts before they’re published. It’s trained my eye for detail and given me invaluable editing and proofreading skills. I’ve also seen hundreds of TED talks. What’s my favorite?

How do you survive in nyc?
Good question. I’ve always had a few jobs going on. Along with freelance TED work, I teach with Child’s Play at Friends Seminary. I also work for a startup called Makomi.
What is SPACE on Ryder Farm?
SPACE is a non-profit artist residency on New York’s oldest working organic farm. I’ve been involved with SPACE since 2012. I would not have survived without this haven 90 minutes north of New York City. I’ve been an intern and chef with the SPACE team. In 2017, I was a creative resident and in 2019 I was a winter resident.
So What Are You?
In our culture, we really like to know WHO you are and WHAT you do, but we are complex, multitalented, evolved beings. The artists I admire most are the ones who cross that label boundary, who venture into new mediums, who maintain their curiosity and see it all the way through.
