Specifically, I'm a senior interactive producer and design technologist based in Portland, Oregon. I was recently a graduate student in the InViz program at MICA, studying interactive data visualization. You may be here because my thesis project was just shortlisted for a Kantar Information Is Beautiful Award—if so, welcome! In case you were wondering, I look more or less like this:
Currently I'm at Opal, where I work on a small portfolio of projects in customer experience, product and product marketing. Previously I've worked at AKQA, Periscopic, Mekanism and Domani Studios.
My day-to-day work is centered on the creation of software-driven tools and experiences, as a manager of people, teams and projects. I've been doing this about eight years, so I'm reasonably good at it now. This is mostly what you'll see reflected on my LinkedIn page, but it's far from the whole story.
Other things: Newish dad! Musician. Lapsed photojournalist. Pretty good with Excel, Illustrator.
An Ocean of Noise, my graduate thesis project, explores streaming music data from Spotify Charts, and was recently shortlisted for a Kantar Information Is Beautiful Award!
50/30/20, an investigation of income and financial stability, in collaboration with designer, classmate and friend Amy Cesal, which was also shortlisted!
