About Ginger Makela Riker
Born in the north woods of Minnesota in the middle of winter.
Recon + navigation. I hunt things down.
Appreciate slow, big ideas that come from detailed observation, acute empathy, and idle reflection.
Love people who can communicate rather than just talk.
Interested in publishing and the transmission of information.
Dreamed of getting a Ph.D in English, but wound up in tech instead.
Proud Gen Xer. Part of the last generation that came of age before the internet.
Worked for Twitter and Vine. And before that, Google. Professional details here.

Live in Brooklyn with my husband Jason Riker and we have a photo studio in Clinton Hill where we shoot fitness, dance, beauty & fine portraits.
