Hey there - thanks for visiting!

My work has involved reporting, developing, designing, and drawing. I've spent time with organizations like the Associated Press, The Pudding, NASA JPL, Boston's Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Visualizing Impact. My academic background comes from mathematics and computer science at Cornell University. Outside of work, I enjoy training Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
