I'm a digital storyteller with 10 years of experience writing compelling content and code for news publications, non-profit organizations, and data-driven companies.

From 2012 to 2016, I was the Blog Editor and Content Strategist for Pivotal Software. Prior to Pivotal, I served as the Editor of Shareable Magazine from 2009-2012, as well as Web Content Strategist and Manager for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 2008-2010.

Notable freelance projects include researching program impacts for Code for America, prototyping an interactive storytelling map for Howlround, A Center for Theater Commons, and hosting the culture podcast EGAD! with Leland Cheuk. Sometimes I build Internet things for my own amusement such as Cryptid Planet, an interactive map of the mysterious and mythical beasts that allegedly haunt the forests and lakes of the world.

My journalistic work and cultural criticism has appeared in publications including Utne Reader, the AV Club, Gapers Block, and the SF Weekly. My fiction and narrative nonfiction has been published in GOOD, Make: A Chicago Literary Magazine, Proximity Magazine, and Cellstories. While living in Chicago, I performed as a member of 2nd Story's year-long live storytelling cycle.

Now residing in Austin TX with my partner and a ridiculous number of books and digital devices, I'm fascinated with the interaction between technology, humans, and the inscrutable. Current obsessions include The Twilight Zone, Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Hari Kunzru's Gods Without Men, and the many iterations of Nintendo's Mario franchise and the Shin Megami Tensei series.
