Hi, I'm Dakota

I'm a developer and designer who thrives at the intersection of storytelling, data, and creative technology.

I love building interactive tools, design systems, and data visualizations — and advocating for those products to center accessibility and inclusive design principles.

Before focusing on all that, I went to school for creative writing — and honed my skills as a journalist and essayist for magazines that include Yoga International, Paper Darts, American Craft, and Monkeybicycle plus the anthology The Way We Sleep.
