Programs and Content Manager

I began inventing worlds and pulping them into words when I was eight. My first story chronicled great feats of bravery at an interstellar skateboarding contest on planet Blarglebreck. Later, I would publish a novel unifying my experiences in multiple real worlds–from investigative journalism to medical research—while drawing from a range of life experiences and intellectual obsessions. If you think this sounds strangely, philosophically parallel to technological invention, then I’d agree. Both are fueled by the inventive spirit’s drive to create something new; both are structured by a creative process; both connect a range of experiences with a pool of knowledge; and both are (often) best done collaboratively, with the help and support of a community.
Growing up with a Sci-Fi novelist for a mother and a mad scientist allergist for a father, I was always fascinated by the way, as Arthur C. Clark wrote: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Innovation overflows with great stories begging to be told; and even as a science communicator by trade, I have always been a story teller at heart. My own story veered into science as a research assistant at Harvard Medical School, and then back into writing with a Master’s in Science Journalism from Boston University. I was an assistant editor at the Harvard Health Newsletters; then I won a couple community journalism awards at the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror. Naturally, I wound up in Finland as a part-time SciFi novelist and the Content and Communications Lead for ambient sleep technology company, Beddit, which ultimately became the first Finnish product company acquired by Apple. Along the journey I’ve developed a profound appreciation for innovation and the problem solving process that makes the magic happen. I’m honored to help articulate the Xinova brand and tell the stories of our incredible inventor community.
I like loud music while running, good books while traveling, and bad TV when relaxing–as long as popcorn is served. As a kid I enjoyed applying science towards making loud exothermic reactions.
