Hi there! I’m a San Francisco-based games and immersive experience designer with a passion for games, real-world data, interactive narrative, maps, public space and theater — and the intersections between them. I've made games that incorporate email, twitter, facebook data, and mapping data, social networks, and GPS.
I design and produce live experiences, including The Headlands Gamble, an all-inclusive weekend trip to Marin that the New York Times called "Like being the detective in Twin Peaks", and a city-wide rendition of the cult sci-fi classic Logan's Run.
I'm a community organizer: I started and ran the Adventure Design Group, a local speaker series for immersive experience designers, for five years, and now run the Immersive Design Summit, the premiere gathering of immersive creators worldwide.
And I make a living as a software engineer: I got involved in the healthcare.gov fix, helped found the first public-benefit software contractor to the federal government, and spent four years building modern web infrastructure for federal social safety net programs like Medicare and the Veterans Administration. I'm now the Head of Security at Weights & Biases.
