Design, data communication, and collaboration for social change

For the last 3+ years, I’ve been working with Civic Software Foundation as Creative Director and Data Visualization Lead.

Today, I’m excited about the early stages of funding, designing, and building public data communication products and platforms with the potential for transformative impact in highly collaborative environments. If you are too, get in touch!
