Let’s use computers to address important social problems with urgency, clarity and creativity.

Design and strategy

I design and build data products to improve human sensemaking. My focus is conceptualization, positioning and prototyping products using applied machine learning, data visualization and large datasets.

Big questions

How can we expand human capacity to better cope with critical social and environmental problems?

How can we visualize data to make better decisions within it and recognize opportunity?

How can we manage complexity with ethical responsibility to make powerful digital systems inclusive and accountable?
