Technology is a tool that helps us express ourselves. Computers have always helped me tell stories and understand who I am – and I want to do everything I can to help others use technology to do the same.
My name is Liv and I’m excited to see you here!
I’m a product leader / creative technologist / tech policy enthusiast / lifelong student. I’ve been working in the immersive technology space (the so-called “metaverse”) for the last 10+ years, and I have a strong passion for helping people use technology to tell their stories and make the world a better place.
In my current professional role, I run the Mozilla Hubs team as a Director at the Mozilla Corporation, where I lead a cross-functional team of engineers, designers, product, and community managers in building immersive virtual world experiences in the browser. I am also an executive MBA candidate at Columbia Business School, where I’m studying leadership and marketing. At Columbia, I serve on the Student Leadership and Ethics Board and will chair the organization for the 2023-2024 academic year.
I’m a big fan of open source, emerging technology, and advocating for ethical product policies that protect user privacy and information. From January – March in 2020, I participated in a fellowship with the Aspen Institute and launched The Digital Afterlife Project, a tech policy project designed to help organizations make better decisions about posthumous data collection and management. I have a passion for the web and open ecosystems that enable individuals and teams to be empowered to create and deploy technologies.
In my free time, I shoot film and digital photography, write stories, nonfiction, and poetry, and create mixed media artwork in my home in New York City.
