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.
