I'll soon be joining 18F as an Innovation Specialist in its Consulting division.

Why I'm joining.

The Washington Post


Helped establish The Washington Post’s NYC product design shop, WPNYC; focused mostly on internal publishing tools to empower journalists.

2010, 2012–2013

ReliefWeb / UN OCHA


Defined the product roadmap with medium- and long-term strategic planning for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs' primary humanitarian portal.
