As an experienced technologist and designer, I work in the crossroads of critical theory, linguistics, AI, and emerging technology.  

I don't believe in the simplicity of a problem statement. Most challenges in design have to be met with more than design thinking.  They must be met with critical thought, cultural understanding, and systemic approaches, as well as a willingness to learn. While empathy is the ultimate goal with users, respect must be the foundational principle for a design practice that creates impactful and lasting  solutions.

I am currently based in Seattle and work as a research scientist for the Machine Learning for Language group at the Center for Data Science at New York University. If you'd like to talk about research collaborations, potential freelance work, or just a conversation, reach out on my contact page.
