Hi! I'm Talisa.

My work tends to involve storytelling, community, and design thinking.

As a consultant, I help product and marketing teams organize their thoughts, incorporate user research into their processes, and create compelling narratives. 

As a writer, I'm focused on developing material for the screen. I'll soon be pursuing an MFA in Film & TV Writing at Stony Brook University.

I'm co-founder and Community Director at Self Evident, a podcast-in-development at the Made in NY Media Center. We're taking on what it means to be American through Asian America's stories.

I'm also a co-founder of Her Girl Friday, a NYC-based group that puts on events featuring work and advice from female-identified journalists.

Since the 2016 election I've run a participatory newsletter called Last2Weeks, designed to help my peers stay politically and civically engaged for the long haul. Join us!

Johannesburg-born and California-raised, I'm usually based in Brooklyn.
