In 2009 I founded Bocoup, an inclusive technology consulting company where we work on accessibility, inclusion, and justice on and through the web. Our team of product managers, project managers, designers, and engineers works to prioritize the inclusion and safety of people from marginalized backgrounds through the course of this work. We use tools like our Code of Conduct to incorporate our organizational values into the way we work with clients and the broader web technology industry.

Along with running Bocoup day-to-day, I contribute to other projects related to art, technology and social justice including:

I have also contributed to various web standards and software projects. From 2011 until 2017, I was an invited expert to the W3C where I started the first community group for web games, and helped conceive of and develop web platform tests. During this same period, I worked on the web video programming tool Popcorn.js and supported the p5.js project. I also helped write the jQuery API documentation, and start the jQuery Foundation, where I served as a board member until it was taken over by the linux foundation. Before Bocoup, I worked as a front-end developer for an early 2000s internet health company, where I built early client side web video applications.

Prior to all of this I studied Liberal Arts (studio art, critical theory, history, anthropology) at Bennington College from 2003 to 2005.
