Hi, I'm Sonya — well, at least supposedly 😉 I describe myself as:

  • a writer
  • a curious person
  • an incorrigible dilettante

Professionally, I run communications at the Zcash Foundation. Very occasionally I'm available for freelance gigs.

My abiding question, the question I'm always asking:

How and why do people organize themselves in the ways that they do?

There are many answers! The topic spans human nature, incentives (both economic and otherwise), complex systems and emergent order, practical epistemology, memetics, microeconomics, ingroup-outgroup dynamics... I could probably go on. Niche subcultures are a particular fascination of mine 😍

The best way to keep up with my doings is by subscribing to my newsletter, which goes out monthly-ish (sometimes more, sometimes less).

Check out my old homepage for a longer version. You can also find my old portfolio of clips on that website. Forthcoming portfolio updates will be posted on this website.
