Hello! I’m Olivia.

Olivia Wood

Born in Chicago and raised in Los Angeles, I’m a lifelong learner who loves writing, music, and asking big questions about everything.

I graduated from Pomona College in 2019 with a degree in Science, Technology & Society and a portfolio in creative writing. While at Pomona, I worked as a peer writing mentor, hosted a radio show on KSPC 88.7 FM, and had an programming internship at 826LA in Echo Park.

From 2017 to 2020, I worked for the award-winning podcast Song Exploder as a production assistant. I transcribed interviews, wrote website copy, compiled script drafts, and edited over 100 episodes.

I currently work at Orfium as a quality assurance specialist. I also serve on the boards of directors for the Telluride Association, an educational nonprofit with a focus on democratic self-governance, and for Children’s Community School, a progressive elementary school in Los Angeles.

I write an occasional newsletter, which you can subscribe to below:

If you’d like to say hi, drop me an email. I’m also on LinkedIn, if that’s your thing.
