I am a designer and developer based in Brooklyn. I like exploring the nature of information, and the tools people use to create software. My time is spent making products and writing.

Here’s some of my work that might interest you:

Products & Initiatives

Teaching on Skillshare

Ongoing

Teacher

I've taught two classes so far: one called "How to Think Like a Designer for Non-Designers", and another one that walks you through the basic concepts of the Internet and the World Wide Web, and teaches you Photoshop, HTML, CSS, and how to get your website hosted.

Product School

A set of educational resources that will teach people the different facets of designing, building and managing digital products.

Poetry & Fiction

Al-Khwarizmi

A dystopian future concept. Working on a non-fiction version of this idea as well.

We are but patterns seeing patterns.

Choice

I feel the shroud of the sacred space enclosing,
it doesn’t weigh a thing,
just chewing at my truth.

I'd forgotten I was on my way to somewhere

You can hear the sound of the ocean in many things.

Winter Before the Year

We spent careless mornings, talking about very little at all

Yellow Flowers

At my grandmother's funeral
