About me

I build user interfaces and open source tools for cities and civic engagement.

A long time ago I was a professional architect and urban designer. These days, I write a lot of code for the Internet. Most of the time, I’m working on Streetmix. Other times, I work on creative projects under the banner of the Bad Idea Factory. You can usually find me in Philadelphia and New York City.


This website was built with Gatsby and deployed on Netlify. Typefaces are Butler, Montserrat, and Libre Franklin. Cover photos are taken by me.
