I’m an NYU 2018 grad and the founding editor of HERpothesis, a website and zine featuring creative work by young women inspired by STEAM (that’s STEM  + Art). My interests range from physics to film to cephalopods—and you can find me writing and making art about these subjects across the web. I used to intern at StarTalk Radio, where I got to nerd out on their blog and listen to their smart and funny hosts dishing out the secrets of the universe. Last summer I got to work as a media and outreach intern for the Event Horizon Telescope. At the end of this school year I finished producing the NYU Tisch animated thesis “The Missing Link.” This summer, I interned at Nickelodeon in Burbank, working with the Live Action Development and Current Series teams.
