A double major in English and history, I received my B.A from Augsburg College in 2015. I am currently working towards my M.A. in the Geographic Information Science program at the University of Minnesota, where I hold a research appointment at the Borchert Map Library. An active proponent of the digital humanities, my work focuses on the intersection of place and historical narrative.
Born and raised in the Twin Cities, I am a regular contributor to the Historyapolis Project and am currently serving as the project's web developer and GIS director. I am also the research lead for the Mapping Prejudice project, which tracks racially restrictive housing covenants in Minneapolis.
