Hi! I'm Eileen.

I am a New York City-based independent writer and journalist, 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, business, and policy for The New York Times, Nikkei Asian Review, and the World Economic Forum, among others.

And, as often as I can, I also write about food, climbing, and travel.
