Miriam was born in Tacoma, Washington. She was the daughter of an anthropologist and studied cultural anthropology and archaeology at UC Berkeley. She first encountered the Institute for the Future (IFTF) as a teenager when she was part of a sample study group taken from her school. An internship opened up for her at the Institute after high school. She has worked at IFTF for five years.
The ideas for Miriam's work come from Dr. Sahail Inayatullah, from his aricle: Six Pillars: futures thinking for transforming.
