I am a Co-Founder and Design Director of JustFix.nyc, a civic technology non profit in NYC. We create tools for tenants, community advocates, and legal services fighting for housing justice, and visualize open data to make information more transparent, accessible, and actionable. 

I have an MFA in Information Design and Visualization from Northeastern University; I am driven by design thinking, systems architecture, and human centered design processes. I thank my many years working in the hospitality industry as a bartender (you can still find me behind the bar in brooklyn!) for my comfort in and love of design research and facilitation.

I was formerly a UX designer at DockYard in Boston and a Design Fellow at Blue Ridge Labs.

I love what I do, and I don't take myself too seriously. You can read some of my thoughts here.

“Design takes place in the world of the imagination, where one invents and manipulates ideas and concepts instead of the real thing — in order to prepare the real intervention. They work with models as means of vicarious perception and manipulation. Sketches, cardboard models, diagrams, and mathematical models, and the most flexible of them all, speech, serve as media to support the imagination.”
— The Reasoning of Designers, Horst Rittel
