I’m partly a designer, partly a creative, mostly a software engineer, and entirely an idealist.

I’ve been working as a technologist at nonprofits in DC for 7 years, which is to say, I’ve been learning the art of doing a lot with a little for 7 years. Little money, little time, small teams. So I’ve learned to be resourceful, empathetic, and efficient. I'm collecting my thoughts about my work so far here.

I grew up in Virginia, spent 4 years in Providence, RI, graduating from Brown in 2010, and I guess DC is my de facto home, although I still consider myself a nomad.

Facts and Hot Takes

  • It is in your best interest not to start a conversation with me about the current state of hip-hop.
  • There's a special place on earth for people who dry out chicken.
  • I will entertain any idea, no matter how absurd, for at least 10 seconds.
  • Akira taught me just as much about love as the bible.
  • At the end of the day, I still believe in government.
  • Humans are fundamentally rational creatures.

I enjoy irony, but I often times miss sincerity. I’m aspiring to build software that insists on the dignity and infinite potential of all people. Seriously.
