Currently overlanding the Americas from the bottom (Ushuaia) to the top (Alaska) in an old, but beautiful, van named Rocinante with my partner Ryan.
I've been exploring the world full time for and documenting the experience at there.today and on instagram @theretoday.
Right now, at this very moment, I'm in .
2014 - 2017, I worked at Mapbox in San Francisco as a software engineer.
I covered a lot of ground there working on geocoding, enterprise map servers, API building, traffic data analysis, metrics tooling, image stitching, but the majority of my last year was spent on telemetry data and using massive datasets for traffic, map improvement, and user insight.
2013, I helped start Maptime with some friends (👋 Beth, Alan, & Lyzi).
We helped build a global community around maps and tech education (💛 to all our organizer friends around the world).
2012 - 2013, I helped Stamen Design herd cats (and spider plants, and clients).
I've done some public speaking at Web Rebels, CalGIS, MozFest, and Github (among others), and have a patent with Mapbox.
My formal background is in Anthropology, and before tech, I made food for people. Other interests include bicycles, carpentry, and large installation art.
