Designer / Cartographer
Introduction

I’m a designer with a focus on the social dimensions of technology. I studied architecture in college and started professional life as an exhibit designer. I also enjoy running, hiking, camping, and kayaking. In my spare time, I make maps of lost towns, strange borders and places I've visited.
