i graduated in may 2020 with my master of science in data visualization at parsons school of design / the new school.

my master's thesis visualized touring history and venue size as a representation of musician career paths, serving as a follow-up to my undergraduate thesis at new college, where i graduated with a bachelors in computer science.

my background is a mix of technical research and journalism, with a focus on music.

since 2019, i've been transitioning into management—client, company, and team—at polygraph.

i spent three years in traditional music journalism while also doing computational internships.

but, the journey started in high school when i did a four-year science fair project in cognitive psychology.

i attended the international fair twice, placing third in my category senior year.

in 2017, i was honored as a goldwater scholar.

in my free time, i listen to british indie radio, annoy my best friends in brooklyn, and hunt for the best lattes in scotland.

you'll probably catch me talking about my favorite band catfish and the bottlemen or my newest vintage clothing find.
