Welcome to my corner of the Internet.
I’m Ashley, and I’m interested in human flourishing: understanding it, achieving it, and creating the conditions that nurture it on individual, societal, and civilizational scales. I explore this theme on my Twitter and Substack, and as a guest on various podcasts.
Through my work, I seek to bridge the humanities and technology — the timeless and the cutting-edge — to make sense of our world and shape its future. In addition to my studies in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, I’ve worked in startups, media nonprofits, and investigative reporting initiatives.
I enjoy straying off the beaten path: I recently walked the Camino de Santiago, ran a startup founders' co-living mansion, and worked on an Alaskan peony farm.
I’m currently on the lookout for my next venture, and am always open to a chat. I’d love to hear about what excites you, and see if together we can create something beautiful (or stir up some mischief).
