About Me

Sound is my deepest passion, it has driven everything I've done. It has led me towards a number of fruitful projects, including creating and teaching a computer music class at my alma mater. I'm also the co-founder of LUTE, a technology ensemble with a focus on accessibility.

I currently work as a frontend engineer at KnowledgeHound identifying and solving UX problems, establishing best engineering and A11Y practices, and collaborating with our design team on the component library that drives our product.


The VODER was an early form of speech synthesis designed by Bell Labs and demonstrated at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Requiring a human operator, Helen Harper was the first person to learn how to play it. Put yourself in her shoes and try to operate this simulation of the original console.
