about me

Currently, I work at The Engine Room as the Associate for Digital Resilience and Emerging Technology. I'm also currently a Web Foundation Fellow, investigating the use of GIS for environmental justice as well as analyzing the ethical and security risks associated with its use.

For a few years, I also taught Metrics & Data Visualization at SVA and was co-founder at Pueblo CoLab - a collaborative that creates tech and data processes for the social sector. Prior to that, I worked at various organisations on topics as varied as tackling youth unemployment through climate entrepreneurship, immigrant rights, and international health.

I have a Bachelors degree in International Relations from Boston University and an MPA from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing capoeira, swimming, puzzle type things, hoarding books, tracing my family history, and saying hello to all the dogs.

Where I (slowly) document what I learn.
