Research Study Assistant
"Avid enthusiast of all things innovative, digital and edible."
As a life-long student at heart, an anthropologist by nature, a natural storyteller and connector, I love learning from different people, experiences and places. I’m fascinated by cross-cultural insights, shared experiences, interactive media, design and usability, social innovation catalyzed by social networks, creativity (good food, good stories, good writing) and how all these things can create community between seemingly disparate groups of people and ultimately facilitate learning, exchange and change within these groups.
My interest areas include (but are not limited to):
Research & Development. Social Innovation. Global Health. Food & Culture. Interactive Media. Human-Centered Design. Typography. Data Visualization. Blogging. Good Stories.
I am passionate and inquisitive. I would love to be able to apply my interests, skills and experiences to the realm of food, public health, human services and global development. Ultimately--to work for a platform that allows me to engage with many mission-driven people, organizations and movements within the global community and assist them with research and development, outreach, design, iteration, connecting, engaging, and learning.
I am always scheming about new ideas and new ways to connect in the community. Please do connect if you have an idea, story, experience to share.
(P.S.: ...I also love purple potatoes.)
