I am originally from New York City and am now based in its rival global city, London. I moved to London to do a Masters at LSE Cities from Washington, DC, where I used to work in Civil Rights & Employment law. I currently work at NEF Consulting, the consulting arm of the New Economics Foundation think tank.

I am a cycling activist with expertise in the gender gap and other inequalities in cycling. I am passionate about inclusive cycling and have done cycling advocacy in Washington, DC, New York and London. I approach urban cycling as a lens through which we can examine broader issues around power, privilege and oppression.
