About

I work at the intersections of product and editorial, building systems for writers and editors to work together. I co-founded and served as CEO of Editorially, a platform for collaborative writing and editing; Editorially was acquired by Vox Media where I now serve on the product team. I am also co-founder and former editor-in-chief of A Book Apart, a former contributing editor for A List Apart, and the editor of many books, including The Shape of Design, by Frank Chimero. I previously served as communications director and product lead at Typekit and as creative director at the independent and employee-owned publisher, W. W. Norton & Company.

An accomplished writer and speaker, I have spoken at dConstruct, Build, Confab, TYPO SF, and Beyond Tellerrand. I’ve been interviewed by The Great Discontent and written for A List Apart and Contents, among others.

I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Keith, and our dog, Jax.
