In spring of 2019 my partner Anna Chung and I worked with Design Studio for Social Intervention, a design studio in Boston, to create a planning tool for the inPUBLIC Festival (September 2019). This was project was part of The Civic Media: Collaborative Design Studio, based at the MIT Media Lab and working in collaboration with partners in multiple locations to generate civic media projects that are grounded in real-world community needs. Anna and I partnered with DS4SI and used co-design and lean startup methods for project ideation, design, prototyping, testing, launch, and stewardship. The end result was a Festival Planning Toolkit that addresses 3 aspects of the planning process: figuring out the spatial layout of the activities at each site, creating a timeline for when different activities will take place, and understanding the logistical needs and impact of each activity.

During a workshop led by Joana Varon of Coding Rights on Transfeminist Tech, we used the hands-on card deck to spark ideas for tech that is collectively imagining better futures with transfeminist values at the center. My partner Rebecca and I came up with digital security kit for friends. Inspired by experiences of doxxing and intimidation with digital security, this kit is a tool for friends to support each other in implementing smart security practices! Each kit is mailed to two friends and includes pgp keys, a digital security checklist and intro to encryption, and matching friendship necklaces. Upon completion of the checklist, friends are allowed entry into a digital security community of practice that provides a safety net for social activists to speak out in a digitally secure way. This kit is rooted in the transfeminist values of autonomy and resilience and is inspired by the allegory of the long spoons where people need to feed each other. This was a fun design exercise with no plans to actualize, but get in touch if you are inspired!

This report showcases the monumental state-wide effect of the Massachusetts Community Income Tax Credit on the capacity of community development corporations. Built in Microsoft Power BI, this report required high-level data organization, joining several surveys into a relational database and translating a visualizing style guide into a custom Power BI template.


Collaborated with journalist Alex Kane on an Esri Storymap accompanying long-form article on US weapons exports used for extrajudicial killings of Palestinians.


As part of a larger mapping and data visualization project for the National Network of Abortion Funds I designed and ran an interactive mapping workshop for 300 people at NNAF's National Organizing Summit in July of 2018. Split into four regions, members of local abortion funds worked with other people in their region to map collective power and related barriers to abortion access and abortion funding. The workshop was designed for regional network-weaving grounded in local data, and was the first step of a year-long data analysis and visualization process for the Network.


Researched the commuting trends of low-wage workers working in Cambridge Massachusetts for a public transit analysis on the routes available. Used public data sources including the US Census, American FactFinder, CTPP, and MBTA, analyzing trends and using ESRI ArcMap to map bus and train frequencies.
Created narrative data story using ESRI StoryMaps to increase understanding and accessibility.


In the spring and summer of 2018, I co-coordinated a week-long environmental justice training and leadership development convening for forty youth organizers from across the country. My amazing team ran a selection process for applicants, adapted and wrote political education and organizing 101 training curriculum, fundraised $10,000 in participant scholarships, and coordinated site logistics and travel. West SPROG is a part of the Student Sierra Coalition's summer programming, and provides integral training to the next generation of youth environmental leadership.

In the spring of 2018, I co-ran the annual grassroots fundraiser for the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund (EMA Fund). In a record-breaking year, we raised $85,080, blowing past our stretch goal of $75,000, and engaging a record number of donors. The median donation was just $25, with over 80% of the donations under $50. The fundraiser was a combination of online team-based fundraising using Classy, managing 67 individual fundraisers, and an in-person fundraising party with a raffle, silent auction, and abortion storytelling.
