Hi, I’m a designer and writer based in Brooklyn.

I’ve spoken, led workshops, and taught at General Assembly, Austin Center 4 Design, SXSW Eco, Texas Anthropology Summit, Association for Community Design, Social Good Summit, and TEDx. My work or ideas have been published in New York Magazine, How Design, Makeshift Magazine, Impact Design Hub, and MIT Tech Review. In 2015, I was listed among the world’s top designers in a Fast Company piece. On the side, I do comedy improvisation.
