About Me
I am a 2nd year student in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, advised by Keith Edwards in the Pixi lab. My research interests currently focus on investigating how communities use technology, hyperlocal social networks, social media, and online dating. I'd love to do more work exploring collaborative tools for artists. I received a B.S. in computer science and a B.A. in liberal arts from The Evergreen State College, where we had an optional Tai Chi session before Discrete Math and learned how to hunt for edible mushrooms.

My hobbies include photography, illustration, making music, scuba diving, snowboarding, travelling, and cooking. I was a DJ for KAOS 89.3 FM for years and years as an undergraduate. I really like Studio Ghibli, documentaries, and nearly all T.V. shows. You can find me on Kiva, Couchsurfing, and Kickstarter.
