I am a design technologist in Amsterdam. I work across research, design, and development. I have a background in human-computer interaction and architecture. Feel free to reach out to discuss a topic, collaborate, or for a coffee.
I'm originally from the United States. I went to the University of Illinois of Urbana-Champaign where I studied architecture and human-computer interaction. I was attracted to the Netherlands by its quality of life and its culture.
A design technologist is also known as a full-stack designer. I have a strong technical and non-technical skillset centered on design but also reaches into research and development. In collaborative environments, I work in a deeply-integrated manner with researchers and engineers. In more independent settings, I am capable of flexing between the three domains.
I'm available to freelance. I also enjoy chats.
I offer freelance and consulting services to help you achieve your goals. If you're a non-profit or not-for-profit working on a social cause I support, I offer my services pro bono or at a reduced rate.
I enjoy discussing issues around technology and society. I'm interested in conversational interfaces, sociable media, cooperative living, and trust systems.
If you're in the Amsterdam area and you'd like to meet up, I'd be more than happy to do so over a cup of coffee.
