I am a designer and programmer living in Los Angeles, California.

My work focuses on the construction and communication of computational systems and data visualizations. I see the specific contexts that surround the construction and manipulation of data as elements that need to be made visible through design. Rather than seamlessly presenting complicated systems with overly simple interfaces, my approach makes legible the building blocks of complexity in pursuit of a more transparent and approachable technology. My professional and graduate work has been in pursuit of these themes, fuzing interactive data visualization with narrative and contextual specificity to create new tools for knowledge production.

I received a BA in Computer Science from Bowdoin College in 2017, and an MFA in Media Design Practices from ArtCenter College of Design in 2021.
