I'm a licensed professional engineer and full-stack software developer. I use my engineering expertise to create software that advances sustainable practices in the built environment and build the tools I wish I had when working solely as a design professional.
I have experience / interest in the following:
- data visualization
- research in sustainable design and embodied carbon accounting
- open source engineering software (FEA, interoperability, etc.)
- building digital tools to complement engineering expertise
- equity in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC)
- optimization in computational design
I currently work on a contract basis. Please feel free to reach out with any project ideas or opportunities for collaboration.
