I’m a mapper, graphic designer, and urban planner based in New York City. I recently graduated from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation, where I specialized in International Development, wrote a thesis about conflict urbanism and community-based initiatives in Baghdad, traveled to Bangalore for a challenging studio on informal employment, and edited content for the planning program’s magazine (URBAN). Since then, I have done freelance reporting, mapping, and graphic design for the NY Times; you can find some of the pieces I helped produce here, here, and here. I also spent some time contributing analysis and graphics to public community development projects in New York City, Pittsburgh, Austin, and Houston. These days I’m improving my interactive design skills so that I can more dynamically represent interesting information and analyses.
