Open Source frees information and ideas for community ideation, collaboration, and iteration. It’s a faster track to better results and a more united design and tech communities.
Creators of digital products and services need to be representative of broader society so all needs can be seen and met.
The world to come together to design (thoughtfully craft) solutions to our most pressing problems.

The camera in any digital phone. It’s still evolving, getting sharper and creating higher-resolution images and videos, but it’s such a powerful tool in virtually every persons hands. It gives so many people the ability to explore their artistic eye, have a face-to-face conversation with loved ones across distances, be a photojournalist – capturing and distributing history, and be archivists – collecting and preserving experiences. It’s changing the way we watch, share, protest, communicate, govern, and own the experiences we’re a part of.
Prior to joining Automattic, I was the Creative Director and a digital strategist at the White House during the Obama administration. In addition to my work at Automattic, I’m a frequent speaker, a national board member for AIGA – the professional association for design, an advocate for the ability of design and designers to help create racial equity, and an editorial board member for Design Observer. I formed DotGovDesign, an initiative and annual conference connecting and empowering U.S. government designers.
