I'm an independent data journalist and civic technologist. Creating beauty from messy data is my passion.
Previously, I was a Data Fellow at Propublica.
A couple years before that I created DataLensDC to tell DC's stories with data. It quickly grew from a hobby to a part-time and then full-time job.
I like to teach and talk. Maybe more importantly, I like to lift the voices of others.
In my free time I co-captain Code for DC and co-organize Tech Lady Hackathon. Sometimes I make silly things.
People have written some kind words about me. I've even won some awards.
