About Me

I am a social entrepreneur, working on an app to help people align their big financial decisions with their values. As a freelance information architect, I work with startups, education, finance, real estate and local community organizations. I am involved in the UX and GIS communities in NYC, managing non-profit operations and serving on steering committees at local GIS and web design organizations for many years. I am especially interested in linked open data, GIS, and digital archives. While serving on the board of Virtuous Reality Interactive, Inc., a not-for-profit web design and education initiative, I participated in the education of middle school students on the Pine Ridge Reservation near Rapid City, South Dakota. This experience and my experience with the Municipal Art Society, bringing mapping technology to local communities, have been valuable in my participation in online and open source community development projects.

My Vision

A world where our voices are free, expression+access are open & we make a positive impact together.
