I am a technophobe-turned-technologist who still believes deeply in the potential for communication technology — if we can design it right.
I have worked as a designer and frontend developer on projects involving collaborative work on cross-language communication, religious conflict, homelessness, city planning, election monitoring, urban violence, racism, and food security. I have presented to the Interaction Design Association and AIGA in San Francisco, the CrisisMappers conference, the African News Innovation Challenge, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the Hewlett Foundation Grantees meeting, the NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program, and most recently, the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, where I now live. I have also conducted a variety of design trainings in the field with Meedan (Cairo), Humanitarian OpenStreetMap (Indonesia), InSTEDD (Cambodia) and Ushahidi (Queens).
