I make the internet useful

Content strategist, policy wonk, and internet maker by trade. Philosopher and political theorist by training. Lover of style guides. Advocate for unconferences, open-access publishing, and interdisciplinary scholarship. Obsessing at the intersection of academia, design, and policy.

I am a political philosopher and policy nerd obsessed with typography, design, and technology. I am most interested in the intersections of normally unrelated fields, for instance:

To put it another way: I study interconnectedness and find ways for academic scholarship to create practical social change.

Nerd of many trades

I am content strategist and developer at Green America and founder of A Yellow Raven a content strategy and open-access advocacy consultancy. I ran Enguin Design, a web design and content strategy consultancy specializing in not-for-profit web community-building from 2009 to 2012. From 2007 to 2009 I was a program manager and the IT Director at Scientists and Engineers for America. Before that, I interned for then Representatives Tammy Baldwin (now Senator from Wisconsin) and David Wu (from Oregon).

One day, I may grow up to become a scholar.
