I am a detail-oriented and flexible engineer dedicated to fostering accessibility and inclusivity. I have worked in all stages of the design and development process which makes me an empathetic collaborator, and I am experienced in utilizing design thinking to create digital experiences that minimize user effort, using whatever technology best suits the product (even if I have to learn it on the fly).
I led a team of in the creation of an open-source SMS/web platform empowering rural indigenous Guatemalans to hold their government accountable for providing healthcare, as part of a fellowship with Open Society Foundations. This project has also been used for community reporting of issues that lead to maternal mortality rates in Assam, India.
Outside of leading front-end development for website redesigns or creating interactive installations for experiential clients, I have spent the last six years working with Death By Audio Arcade to build and curate indie arcade exhibitions. The DBAA collection, including my game (Fútbol Forever), has been widely shown at galleries and events including the Smithsonian American Art Museum and World Maker Faire. Partnering with Dreamhouse, an LGBTQ venue in Ridgewood Queens, to commission nine games by local queer developers for an arcade cabinet installed on site is one of my all time favorite projects I have been a part of.
