I have more than 15 years of experience working with nonprofit organizations on campaigns that impact policies and communities. I launched the Detroit Food Map initiative in 2011 and founded DETROITography in 2013. My first book based on my mapping work, Detroit in 50 Maps, was published in 2021.
As a data nerd and anthropologist, I love sifting through spreadsheets and sitting down with people to tell meaningful stories. By combining human experiences with data and analytics, I’m able to evaluate and elevate the strategic impact for all types of organizations through mapping, infographics, and campaigns. My personal research is focused on food access, racial justice, data literacy, and health equity.
