bio

A map is not just a map. It’s more of a conversation between the mapmaker and the map reader—and the landscape. As a student in Computer Sciences and Cartography at the University of Wisconsin, I started out exploring the intersection between maps and code. But after making maps in Scotland, writing a book, managing tech teams at companies with vastly different missions and vibes, editing a database of secret (but not entirely top secret) cutting edge drug trials, and nursing a linguistics habit on the side, I am now crafting maps out of code. I’m the developer. My users and students are the readers. The landscape is the web. Let’s talk.
