I am a product manager and data visualization artist. I work at Google on the People Analytics team, building new platforms for dynamically interacting with data.

I graduated from Notre Dame and Carnegie Mellon, and was also a NSF-funded researcher at the Mathematics Department of Brown. I've spoken about applied data visualization at the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, the United Nations, Stanford, MIT, and more.

WisdomArc Time Machine
WisdomArc Time Machine (website) is an interactive installation collecting and visualizing wisdom across generations. It asks the question: What message would you tell your younger self? And at what age? It was created by myself and photographer Chris Johnson and launched at the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco.
Oakland Fence Project
The work-in-progress Oakland Fence Project (website) is a large-scale outdoor photography installation connecting artists and communities. Six-foot tall pictures by local artists will be displayed in Jack London Square and, through a mobile app, can be augmented with video stories. Created by Wendy Levy, NAMAC, and the team. Coming soon.
Sparkwise Impact Dashboard
I co-founded and launched the free, open source Sparkwise Dashboard for nonprofit impact reporting, in partnership with Tomorrow Partners and Wendy Levy.
Google Project Oxygen
In partnership with Harvard, my Google team published a summary of our journey within Google quantifying and institutionalizing the attributes of effective people management. This effort includes the regular publishing of personalized reports to every manager in the company, using a new data visualization platform I built within Google.
I partnered with Mikhael Felker to launch ShortcutGuide listing and visualizing the keyboard shortcuts of popular software products. User-selected shortcuts are overlayed on a virtual keyboard (with dynamic QWERTY and DVORAK layout options). Though now defunct, the site grew in popularity over the time it existed and was featured in popular productivity blogs.
Flatland Explorer
As a NSF-funded researcher at Brown, I built a new tool showing the network of relationships that exist within math texts. Instead of learning a subject in the traditional approach of front cover to back cover, a student can instead start with a topic of their own interest (e.g., biology) and the system then displays all the related subject matter from the text. This was a prototype design for a non-linear and passion-first approach to learning.
Geometry Courseware
Working with Thomas Banchoff of the Math Department at Brown, I came in for a summer and upgraded the user interface of his innovative courseware tool which enables interactive and community-based online learning. Coursework arrives complete with 3D geometric models and classroom-driven discussion boards. The work is currently used across multiple universities today.
