  1. 5+ years of interdisciplinary design experience

    My mixed background as a researcher, designer, and developer helps me be flexible to just about any working context.

    I've led discovery teams at the CIA and USDA, designed accessible ticketing flows at Amtrak, and have audited for Section 508 compliance at Veterans Affairs and Southern New Hampshire University.

    I can't share my client work due to NDAs, but you can check out my pro bono projects or see my activity on github instead.

  2. Design educator and evangelist

    I've been invited to speak at the National Intelligence University, Carnegie Mellon, and Virginia Tech. I’ve also helped architect design ethics course material at the University of Virginia.

    Read up on my articles and talks.

  3. A calling, not just a career

    Design is my calling.

    I’ve read over 100+ books on design and give back to the community from improving accessibility at DC Design Week to sourcing diverse speakers for the Dot Gov Design Conference.

  4. Grounded in design ethics and inclusion

    My colleagues describe me as an ethically grounded, inclusive, and empathetic designer.

    I believe in serving and centering marginalized people first. I design with, I don’t design for.
