I am currently managing analyst at CB Insights, where I lead a team of data and research analysts covering corporate strategy, venture capital investment, and emerging business models and technologies in financial services.

In November 2015, I launched Insurance Tech Insights, a weekly newsletter which tracks technology investment, partnerships, strategy, and M&A in the global insurance industry for an audience of 38,000+ subscribers. I also lead content strategy for CB Insights' 1,000-person Future of Fintech Conference and manage advisory projects for leading banks, (re)insurers, and private equity firms.

I graduated from Northwestern University with a B.S., magna cum laude, in 2013.
