About Me

I work on backend systems at Chartbeat.

Previously I worked as a research software engineer at the Center for Constructive Communication, a part of the MIT Media Lab. Before joining the Media Lab, I was a graduate student at the University of Chicago, where I studied data science and public policy in the Computational Analysis and Public Policy master's program. Before that, I worked in NYC as a full-stack developer at a gaming startup and then a housing non-profit.

In my free time, I like to write about computer history and why the software we use every day works the way it does.
