Hello! I am a writer, a musician, and a software developer, the common ground between which is the creation of structures for aesthetics and creativity – grammar, chords, code, and so on. I currently work as an interactive data visualization engineer at the New York Times, prior to which I was a data journalist and writer for The New Yorker magazine. In other past lives I’ve built audio and video archival software for Bob Dylan, edited the music section of an alt-weekly newspaper, and taught audio engineering and music theory to kids. My writing has been published by Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, McSweeney’s, Wired, Vice, Grantland, Spin, The Village Voice, Tape Op, and others.
