My work focuses on making tech safer by prioritizing the most vulnerable. Tech is weaponized for interpersonal harm, including domestic violence, child abuse, and invasive surveillance. Designers and other technologists don't have to be complicit in this weaponization; we can prevent it and give power back to survivors through intentional design strategy.
Check out The Inclusive Safety Project for resources and to learn more about services, workshops, and courses related to designing for safety.

I worked in education non-profit before making a change to the tech world. I love teaching and mentoring other career changers and helping them find their way into the fields of design and development. I teach on and off through General Assembly and do frequent informal instruction and mentoring.

I spend my non-design time consuming any zombie-related media I can get my hands on, tending to my plants, and hanging out with my dog Hamlet and kitten Reptar.
