As a 2012 Code for America fellow, I adopted, adapted, and wrote new open source software for Macon, Honolulu, Santa Cruz, and Chicago.
I was awarded First Place in the 2012 Civic Data Challenge, and Key to the City of Macon, Georgia. Our Honolulu Answers team received several awards.
In 2013 I developed apps with Datamade for the Chicago Health Atlas, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
I continue to hack on open data and government at The Asia Foundation's Digital Media and Technology Program, and Code for America meetups.
Some of my favorite projects are Blockee, MaconMaps, and the Boston Bike Plan.
