I speak regularly about how technology is impacting politics, nonprofits, business, the workplace, and culture. I have lectured before the Democratic Caucus of the US Senate, senior government officials in France, Brazil, and Mexico; at universities including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Oxford, at the United Nations World Urban Forum; and at technology and politics conferences in countries including Nigeria, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Bosnia, Peru, China and Australia.

My work has been written about in publications including the Washington Post, Newsweek, WIRED, O Globo (Brazil), Strategies (France), and Fast Company, which named the Obama media team “The Most Innovative Startup of 2009,” beating out Apple and Google. In 2010, the Guardian named me one of the “Top 50 US Politics Twitter Accounts to Follow.”
I am currently pursuing my Masters of Fine Arts in fiction writing at Columbia University, where I am working on a collection of short stories and a novel.
I also write on technology, politics, and social movements for publications including The Nation, Mother Jones, New York Magazine, the Washington Post, the International Herald Tribune, and GOOD, where I regularly contribute. I have appeared repeatedly on Bloomberg TV to discuss the impact of new media on campaigns. I have also produced several documentaries for Current TV.
I was born and raised in the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain in Boston, Massachusetts. I attended the Boston Public Schools before graduating from Harvard with a degree in Social Studies.
