About

I’m a designer in New York City.

I run Cottleston Pie, a digital design studio that works with nonprofits, higher education, cultural institutions, and political campaigns.

In the last seven years, I've done a lot of work that I'm proud of, for organizations that are making a positive impact on the world: Partners In Health, The Human Rights Campaign, Surfrider Foundation, Audubon, FDR Four Freedoms Park, #TackleEbola, Maker's Row, Film Society at Lincoln Center, Gary Hustwit, The Feast, littleBits, and a whole lot more.

Before starting my own design studio, Cottleston Pie, I worked as the Principal Designer at Blue State Digital in New York City.

Things I Make

I get really excited about things. Sometimes the excitement even lasts long enough to become a real project! These are a few of the ones that made it:

Get Biked

Get Biked is a weekly email group. Each week I send a list of bikes for sale to the community. Bikes are submitted through the website and if they meet the required criteria, they get added to the list.

On a Wednesday

On a Wednesday is a collaboration with Bekka Palmer where we ask stangers what they're up to that day. The idea is to showcase the different types of lives people are leading all across this city.

What's in Season Today?

A simple web app that displays the produce that is in season today. It's still a prototype, so be gentle!

scrtchpd.com

A simple tool that turns your browser window into a note(scratch)pad. The content is saved locally, with no need to save!

SongFight

Fight your friends with music.

Access Together

The goal of Access Together right now is to gather reliable accessibility data about venues. Users are able to search the database for locations that meet their specific accessibility requirements.

On Your Way Here

On Your Way Here was an interview series that I started a few years back. It ran out of steam, but the idea was that each interview introduced me to the next, allowing the interviews to govern themselves.
