I'm an experience designer, cartoonist, and all-around digital media witch. I design playful communications solutions and help media organizations tell better stories.
In 2012 I cofounded Symbolia, an interactive digital magazine that published long-form journalism told through comics until 2015. I'm currently a fellow with the JoLT (Journalism Leadership Transformation) initiative at American University studying the intersection of game design and news media. I teach Digital Comics in the Comics MFA program at California College of the Arts. I've worked with clients from American Public Media to Bed Bath Beyond. For more, have a look at my CV here.
My work has appeared in Columbia Journalism Review, has been written about in FastCo., Poynter, and other outlets, and I have spoken about telling better stories at Game Developer's Conference, VOCER Innovation Fest, on The Verge's Top Shelf, and others. I talk a whole lot about journalism, collaboration, and playspaces, and I'm super interested in what different kinds of digital or social interactivity could do to make these things more exciting for audiences.
I draw, ride bikes, code, and sleep in Washington D.C. (for now).
