Hi! I’m Lou.

I’m an urban designer and web developer, based in New York City by way of San Francisco, building open source civic software. I focus on user experience, interaction design, and civic engagement. Here are some of my projects.


An interactive website that empowers citizens to create their own street designs and share them with each other and with city planners.


Civic Seed

Civic Seed is a browser-based multiplayer game designed to teach students how to become more effective contributors to local communities.


The open data portal for the City and County of San Francisco was remodeled to help civic data users find information more easily.
