In 2011, I started teaching adult learners from diverse backrounds how to double-click, browse Wikipedia, and enter functions into Excel.
Six years later, I still love helping learners work towards their goals with technology, but I draw upon a different toolkit: developing web applications and open source software, consulting with clients from diverse backgrounds and with varying levels of technical expertise, mentoring young developers, and writing.
As a Data Visualization Intern in the Digital Projects Studio at the University of Michigan Library, I collaborate with small teams on projects spanning the data analysis pipeline, design and teach workshops, and write about code.

Outside of work I love pinball, zines, hikes, cats, and trains.
