Hi I’m Cara! I’m a freelancer writer, marketer, and eternal optimizer. When not traveling, I live, work, and play in Brooklyn.


About Me

A journalist by training, I have been applying my writing, research and editing skills to an amazing content marketing team at Optimizely for the past four years. I am passionate about working in fast-paced environments with people who teach me to be a better thinker, cook, adventurer, and communicator.


Before Silicon Valley, I was immersed in a completely different world: African languages and culture. I studied Yoruba, the dominant Nigerian language, for four years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From 2010-2011 I lived in Ibadan, Nigeria studying Yoruba language and culture with a program sponsored by American Councils for International Education.
