I’m also on the board for the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). From 2016-2018, I served on the Executive Board for the Greater Washington Urban League’s young professionals group. Under my leadership, we automated all intake processes and data collection for engagement report, managed 9 committee chairs (whom managed teams of between 8-25 volunteers), led two Executive Training & Retreats, approved 85 program proposals, attended 9,600 hours of volunteer time, and led efforts to grow membership by 160%.
I authored a 128-page booklet, The Guide to Map Design, and over 24 web content pieces about mapping, design, and location technology. I’ve spoken at Typographics 2018, San Francisco Design Week 2018, Portland Design Week 2017, Tallahassee Design Week 2016, and 2xs at the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). My work has been featured in and on The Atlas of Design, Wired, Communication Arts, Architectural Digest, Techinca.ly DC, Revision Path podcast, Dissection Podcast, and All Tech Considered (NPR). In 2017, I was awarded the DCFemTech Designer Award. In 2014, I graduated with my Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the Maryland Insitute College of Art (MICA).
