Welcome friend,

I am a solutions-oriented engineer who is passionate about structuring, iterating, and nurturing systems of community & code.

A little about my journey

I am currently a Senior Frontend Engineer at Bumped, helping build a design system to bridge the gap between native and DOM. Previously I was a Lead Software Engineer at eROI (now Thesis). I started my career working with various startups and small businesses as a web developer and co-owner of a creative studio called 3 Hound Design.

Currently exploring:

  • Building design systems with Gatsby and Storybook
  • Opportunities to contribute to open source and help establish a safe and inclusive tech community

Effective Storytelling with Data Visualization

Email marketers have more data than ever when it comes to subscribers. That doesn’t mean we’re putting it to work, though. By innovating how we think about data and, more importantly, present that data to subscribers, we can tell effective stories that inspire subscribers to engage with us. In this session, we’ll walk through various datasets and how they can be leveraged through visual design, HTML, and CSS to create more innovative emails for our subscribers.
