How did you get into PR?

Initially, I was into government and politics as I really wanted to help constituents get their voices out. But then, I read books that showed me how technology’s really changing the world and saw how dynamic, creative, and fast-moving tech was. Combined with my love for writing and understanding people, I realized that I love to tell technology’s stories of innovation through PR. With PR, I can dissect and understand what each tech company stands for. So, I became a PR intern for a fintech startup, which helped me get an internship at a PR agency, and ultimately led me here to Gravitate.

What type of technology excites you the most?

Sustainability or smart cities. I love all kinds of tech PR, but especially that which deals with the development of society and making things more efficient.

Favorite hobbies or activities?

I’m trying to be more of a reader. Currently, I’m reading the 21 Lessons of the 21st century by Yuval Noah Harari. In this pandemic, I’m also learning to be okay with doing activities alone, such as exploring San Francisco and cooking new foods.
