I’m a civic technologist and design researcher, investigating how design and innovative technologies could best be used to improve public services and opportunities for civic engagement. I earned M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech, while I researched civic media, food security, and urban computing primarily with the Public Design Workshop. Now I design and research blockchain solutions related to food safety at IBM and collaborate with civic hackers at BetaNYC and other progressive activist organizations in New York City.

I also attend many meetups, cook and learn new cooking techniques, enjoy well-crafted coffee and beer, and more:

  • Feedly: for keeping up with dozens of feeds for news, research, and comics
  • Last.fm: for finding new music
  • Goodreads: for organizing and finding new reading material
  • Steam: for playing mostly strategy and simulation games
  • IFTTT: for auto-microblogging my public internet activity
  • Venmo and Coinbase: for transactions
  • Noun Project: for uploading icons I create for diagrams
