Good at the Internet


Professional Nerd

I believe in knowledge as a force for change, and that technology is the key to creating knowledge at scale.

To that end, I co-founded Popily with Chris Albon and Vidya Spandana, where we’re automating data science and making a surprisingly popular podcast. I’ve also served as a data science advisor to the White House and State Department, uncovered terrorists on Twitter with JM Berger for the Brookings Institution, and was the architect behind CrisisNET, a humanitarian data initiative with Ushahidi.

You may remember this site as Good at the Internet, the interactive agency. While we had a blast building products with amazing clients (like SXSW!), these days we’re focused on our own projects.
