Hello, I am

👋🏼 I am a visual journalist/interactive web developer who is currently stationed at Mapbox in San Francisco, CA. I build tools, visualizations, guides, and I support journalists in building better maps and vizs. I am also the co-author of "Location is Personal", Mapbox's developer newsletter. I spent two years at WIRED in SF as a front-end/newsroom developer. Before that, I was a co-lead of the Interactive Lab at Youth Radio. I've worked with NPR, KALW, KQED and more. I am currently playing around with data, cartography, GIS, and interactive storytelling.

🦄 As you will see, my work is diverse and I wasn't always a coder. I've covered topics like food and social justice. I've explored audio editing, writing, photography, and video. My goal is to include my multimedia experience when coding, find new ways to innovate storytelling, and share my process with the journalism community.
