I'm a systems developer at Media Matters for America, a progressive non-profit in Washington, DC. In my spare time I DJ, spinning eclectic downtempo and dance music.

I earned dual Master's degrees in Information Science and Library Science from Indiana University - Bloomington. While there I worked with BROG (Blog Research on Genre), a research group studying the structure of blog and LiveJournal networks. My own research dealt with the ecology of political blog networks. As an undergrad at St. Mary's College of Maryland I focused on the cultural history of the Weimar Republic, particularly media created by German veterans of the First World War and the cultural / aesthetic underpinnings of National Socialism.
