I am a fullstack web engineer. I innovate where code and data meet art and film. I am an active contributor of the Svelte.js open source community. I have also won several awards for my work, including a Peabody and a News & Documentary Emmy nomination.
In 2012 and 2013, I led the web development and engineering effort of an interactive participatory documentary called Hollow.
Hollow explores the issues of small-town America through the voices of people living in McDowell County, W.Va.
The site is employs rich interactive video and data visualization content.
CineModal is an ongoing pet project for creating interactive “modals.”
Modals are a new medium for story content, much like the cinema or video, but interactive, immersive, and built for the web.
I hope to provide new tools and lower the barrier to entry for content creators and consumers in an ever-growing world of online media.
Civic Seed is an open source multiplayer role-playing game I co-developed with the Engagement Game Lab at Emerson College.
Civic Seed draws inspiration from console RPG-style games, but was built from the ground up for online education.
