Digital Projects

1. This website was designed in Atom text editor using HTML and CSS. The structure on the website relies on th flexible css grid Lemonade.

2. I supervised a team of fellows in developing digital visualization tools (with screenreader compatibility) for the Philadelphia Mural Arts Monument Lab project.
