I am a Research Specialist at the Rhode Island Department of Education. Before that, I studied organic chemistry as an undergraduate and urban education policy as a graduate student at Brown University.

Google Reader is my second occupation. Seriously.

I created this space to share my thoughts on all things urban, policy, data, technology, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I live and work in Downcity Providence with my girlfriend Elsa and our dog, Gracie. You can find me on Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, and LinkedIn.
