Presented at the 2017 Tangible and Embedded Interaction Conference (Student Design section) in Yokohama, Japan.

about & contact

I graduated with honors from Brown University in 2017, having been a design & front-end intern at Microsoft and a software intern at Facebook.

I then worked at Facebook and Instagram for 3 years as an iOS developer.

Now I’m taking a break from software to explore storytelling, political work, making videos, writing, and data visualization.
