About

I believe well-designed technology can engage, inform, and empower people. I interrogate that belief through code, design, and media.

In Brief

I’m cofounder of Utopian Slingshot, a freelance web developer, and an AmeriCorps VISTA member.

Longform

I’ve been a UW-Badger, a filmmaker, and an NPR Intern. Born in Minnesota, my path has taken me to Wisconsin, Washington D.C., and Idaho. Currently, I’m developing digital services for citizens as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member with the city of Boise, Idaho. Beyond national service, I co-run Utopian Slingshot, a technology company I cofounded. Outside work and service, I’m an avid reader and film enthusiast.

As a developer, I use HTML, CSS, PHP, Python, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and JavaScript—including libraries like VueJS. As a designer, I prototype application and website interfaces. I also argue for user-testing in real-world situations.

Most importantly, I’m indebted to all the amazing people who I’ve had the pleasure to learn from, and work with, over the years.

Find me on GitHub, CodePen, Linkedin, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also see what I’m up to now or read my resume.

I’m available for consulting.
