Hi! I'm Eileen.

I am a New York City-based writer, outdoor adventurer, and recovering entrepreneur. 

My work explores how our connection to place and culture shapes our beliefs, identity, and behavior in the modern world. I write about these topics, and their intersections with technology, entrepreneurship, and both domestic and foreign policy for publications such as The New York Times, Nikkei Asian Review, and the World Economic Forum, among others. Occasionally, I also write about my other interests: food, climbing, and travel. 

I'm currently working on a book proposal for a memoir, ALMOST HOME, that explores the meaning of place and belonging in my own journey. I am actively looking for representation.
