about

I am a cartographer, graphic designer and visual artist. I am interested in making sense of complex data. I want to tell a story with it and communicate the patterns discovered in the process of analyzing data geographically. It's important to me that I don't lose sight of the texture and complexities of the urban geography and communities behind the data. 

I have experience in print design and visual arts. Over many years working in publishing I've created marketing materials and book designs for a higher education publishing house and a children's book publisher. I've simultaneously maintained a career as a visual artist, exhibiting regularly in New York City and around the country.

I am a cartographer, graphic designer and visual artist. I tell stories with complex data. It's important to me to not lose sight of the texture and complexities of the urban geography and communities behind the data. 

I create maps and analyze data with QGIS and ArcMap, Mapbox, Carto, and SQL. I do some work with Javascript, Leaflet and CartoCSS to create interactive maps and to extend the capabilities of services like Carto. I also have experience in print design and visual arts. Over many years in publishing I've created marketing materials and book designs for a higher education department in a large publishing house and for a children's book publisher. I've simultaneously maintained a career as a visual artist, exhibiting regularly in New York City and around the country.
