Cartography ain't what it used to be. Development and disaster continue to mold the physical world, but for mapmakers, keeping up with geographic changes is busy work -- a tweaked direction here, a freeway exit there. It's very important busy work, as we learned this September when Apple reminded us not to take a good map for granted. The intersection of geography and data, though, is just beginning to fill out.

Story
Introduction

I am Tech Projects Manager at the Open Technology Institute (OTI) @ New America. In my previous work as the GIS & Data Visualization Specialist at the Spatial Information Design Lab (SIDL) and with GD|Viz, I worked on large data visualization projects in the areas of social media, transportation logistics, economic geography, urban flows and other large scale urban issues.

My work focuses on the intersection of human-centered design, urban space, and technology – specifically how technology and data can improve and facilitate the planning process, citizen access to technology and data, and the information systems that people use to interact with urban environments. 

I have a Master's degree in Urban Planning from Columbia University'sGraduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and a BS in Psychology and Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon.
