I make websites. With Kate Howe, I formed Left–Right, a web-development practice serving social-purpose clients. Formerly I was Director of Web Development at Bureau Blank, a branding agency in New York City, where I supervised work for clients such as Living Cities, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and PolicyLink.

This site merges my info from sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with info I enter into a custom CMS. The source code is on Github.
