UX design and research in the civic space

I'm a user experience lead at 18F, and I think a lot about inclusive design, behavioral economics, and the role of civil society. In addition to UX design and research, I can pinch hit as a visual designer, content strategist, or overall product strategist.

I previously worked at Turner Broadcasting, and prior to that I did various stints in the nonprofit sector, including getting a Master's degree in nonprofit management. Previous iterations of my career included visual design and some front end development (mostly HTML and CSS). I work remotely with my two cats, although they don't really contribute a whole lot.
