About Me


I'm a programmer and a writer, a researcher and a community manager, and a lot of other things besides. I tend to work at the intersection of people and technology and I have a soft spot in my heart for anything open: open science, open government, open source software.

I currently run a technology consulting business, Galaxy Rise Consulting. I work primarily with individuals and small organizations to address their technical needs, whether that means building websites and plugins, analyzing datasets, or documenting messy code.

In the past, I've conducted social psychology research, tracked misinformation on social media, ran debates and mock trials and puzzle hunts and sheep brain dissections for kids, compiled meta-analyses of medical research for patients, interned for various politicians, and even wrangled monkeys.

I'm always interested in potential collaborations, so if you have an idea or an opportunity, please get in touch.
