I'm from Texas. I currently live and work in New York City.

I take photos and I write

In my photography and writing, I have always searched for and explored the moments that make us intensely human, and therefore inherently vulnerable.

Most of all, I believe in adventure, observation, and all forms of expression via movement, words, and art. Also, I like eating chocolate, attempting new forms of dance, making up puns, and asking questions. Sometimes all simultaneously. 

Want to work on a project together? I'd love to hear about it.


I work at TED!  I'm often asked what my favorite TED Talks are, so here are a few

My professional qualifications live on LinkedIn

I love to write and travel. Hence, rose in midair, the blog where the majority of my musings live. 

I keep an informal image diary of chasing adventure within the everyday world. 

I occasionally post photography on rosekuo.org | Flickr | Tumblr | Instagram.

I make note of hilarious or touching things on Twitter.

I teach Argentine tango.

I write about food and other indulgences on Yelp.

I collect wildly sprawling and eclectic music playlists on Spotify.

As mentioned above, I write (very occasional) tiny letters about life and love. I love to receive letters and messages ― send one by using the form below.


My Work

I am passionate about creative ways of using technology to spark human connection. 

I speak three languages (English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese).

I have worked in strategic corporate consulting. I specialize in project management, process design, and systems implementation, including all phases of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). 

I have worked with mobile app and co-living startups, as well as nonprofit organizations. I’ve provided consulting services on various aspects of distributed teams and location-independent/remote work, change management, OKR / business goal setting, and project management methodologies.

Currently, I am proud to be working with the TED technology team.

I offer to make up puns and edit grammar for startup companies who might need these kinds of services.
