I currently build tools for visually navigating data at Datadog. I'm interested in the general challenge of how visual tools can unlock new forms of problem-solving.

I draw inspiration from multiple places, from cognitive science and game design to traditional storytelling. I believe effective visualizations may democratize access to insight by giving more people the chance to interact with relevant datasets.

I like collecting stories about people unexpectedly solving problems by learning more about fields unrelated to their own, in hopes of finding "stepping stones" and tales of exaptation.
