I’ve just launched porpoise.studio, a new purposeful data communication studio

Designing and building data communication products for social change, collaboratively

I’m jazzed about the early stages of designing, building, and organizing public data communication products and platforms with the potential for transformative impact in highly collaborative environments.

Currently, I’m working with Aclima.io on air.health, and setting up a worker-owned cooperative product studio for purposeful data communication. Prior to that, I worked with Civic Software Foundation as Creative Director and Data Visualization Lead.

If you’re working in these areas, I’d love to hear what you’re working on and what you’re thinking about. Get in touch πŸ’Œ !

🌍 An equitable, sustainable world requires radically different systems

πŸ“ˆ Data can be material for communication, collaboration, and transformative change

Collaborative work

It's always collaborative work πŸ’–
