Cartographer, designer, artist

I grew up in Northern Virginia. I’m now a senior at the University of Chicago, majoring in statistics.

As a geography and data nerd, I make maps in my free time, inspired by the world around me – whatever happens to be on my mind. Every now and then a map of mine becomes popular and gets publicity; those interested can see my work or get in touch through this website.

I’ve also written a few Quora answers, some of them quite in-depth. I made this site to consolidate my maps, answers, and other creative output.

Got work?

I am graduating in June 2019 and hope to keep working at the intersection of geography and data. I am especially interested in transportation networks. I’d love to hear about any relevant opportunities! Here is my resume.
