These days I’m a senior data scientist at Sonos, which means I am either describing the past and present in useful detail, or attempting to predict the future. It’s a new career path for me (and for pretty much all data scientists, now that I think about it), and I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it soon. Before taking this position, I spent five years at the MIT AgeLab as a research scientist, investigating topics such as automotive safety and technology use across the lifespan. I also led an extensive line of research on text legibility. I daresay I’m something of an expert on the topic. I received a doctorate in Psychology (Cognitive Science) from Boston University.

My hobbies include, but are not limited to: web design, algorithmic art, fun perception tricks, and writing. This website is designed to be a showcase for all of that, so I sincerely hope that you enjoy it.
