New Hire | April 24, 2017

Magen is a writer who is passionate about empathy, social good, and the intersection of user needs and design. Originally from the midwest (hey, Chicago!), she received her degree in psychology before working as a recruiter-turned-writer—first connecting with people through their career goals, then through meaningful storytelling. Having most recently worked in a global communications role at design firm, IDEO, she is delighted to join the Character crew as a Copywriter.

A former ballerina with a penchant for collecting black and grey tattoos, Magen is a lover of the arts—be it performing, visual, or otherwise. When she’s not writing words, you can find her adventuring, snapping photos, catching comedy, watching her stories, staring at the sky, and getting lost in podcasts. Oh, and snacking. Always snacking.
