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, McSweeney’s, Wired, Grantland, Spin, The Village Voice, Tape Op, and others.
