Trained as a ‘researcher’ and a ‘maker,’ I aspire to craft graphics and experiences that inform and invite engagement. As a designer, my passion is integrating big(ish)-data with visual narratives and geographic expression. A curious and creative technologist, I move fluidly between pop-up installations, print, animation, front-end, and back-end development. Ultimately, I love drawing out the connections between our consumptive habits and cultural footprints.

I’m always looking for energetic collaborators and inquisitive environments. I love contributing to intense, impactful campaigns that engage people with social, material, and environmental systems.
