About

I'm a creative technologist based in Brooklyn, New York.

Experience

I am currently working as a software developer, leading the design and development of ml5.js, an open source, web-based machine learning software for artists, designers, educators, and coders. I am supported as a research fellow and faculty member at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program / Interactive Media Arts in the Tisch School of Art.

I've worked internationally in roles focused on open source and fullstack development, digital cartography, data analysis, and product and user experience design. In addition, many of my roles have involved community management, experimental research, technical/science writing, editing, photography, advocacy, and teaching, to name a few.
