NEW INC. Alum:
I design digital platforms and lead development teams to be
their best selves. I also teach computational typography and
design; run an independent riso publishing practice; and do
everything I can to make teams and organizations operate as
smoothly and efficiently as possible. You can

I've been learning to use a pen, lately.
Coming Home: On the morning of December 18th, I sent my hackNY
acceptance email to a little virtual mailbox in NYC.

I'm an engineering lead, creative technician, and clarity-maker.
I enjoy seeing people glow in their expertise, and do my best to
pave the path for them.
I've worked across several government organizations and built
consensus between multiple executive offices and internal
cross-disciplinary leadership. I've driven development roadmaps
for backend, frontend, and infrastructure teams, and have led
major initiatives from ideation, launch, and into operational
maintenance. I've stood up new teams from scratch, guided
individuals and managers through personal conflicts, and helped
engineers to become leaders. I try my best to do all these
things with care and compassion.
I'd love to help you with:
Knowledge organization, documentation, and storytelling. Yes, that includes
Engineering architecture principles and programming mental
models. I have an academic mindset and an affinity for
helping others learn ✨
Designing libraries, frameworks, and modular components. I'm
a big fan of open-source and empowering individuals +
communities to build things quickly and intuitively.
