"Yes, I can definitely help you with that."

I research, think, talk, and write about cities, emojis, tech, language, data, maps, pussies, and other semi-related topics. My work might vary widely but it's all a protracted temper tantrum against my generation's nihilist streak.

My writing has appeared in Slate, WIRED, Print Magazine, Next City, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, Fast Company, UntappedCities, TheDateReport, Nerve.com, Yahoo Travel, the LA Times, in the essay collection, You are Here: Mapping the Soul of the City, and elsewhere. My research has appeared in the New York Times and Quartz.

My projects have been covered by New York Times en Español, The Washington Post's The Lily, the New York Magazine Approval Matrix, Glam, the Today Show, Dame, Buzzfeed, CityLab, Next City, PBS, Digg, Curbed, eleven major publications in France, Fast Company (here, here, and here), and mentioned in the New Yorker

I've sold my creativity in various consulting capacities to RollingStone.com, the Mexico City Government's Laboratorio para la Ciudad, the Art Institute of Chicago, and many other enterprises.

I've spoken at conferences, festivals, corporate headquarters, and colleges in English and in Spanish on topics from the word "vagina," to the similarities between cities and emojis, to potential uses of data visualization to facilitate community collaboration.

Just wanna Help and hopefully learn to be Low Key some day.
