I help people understand how they fit into the world

With new technologies rapidly changing what privacy we can expect, how we tell stories, and even who we can trust, maintaining a clear mental model for how those technologies impact you can be challenging. At work, I help craft products that empower people to better navigate a complex world while handling their data with respect.
