Welcome to my website! I am the Founder and CEO of Freedom, where we work to increase productivity and wellbeing by reducing digital distractions. Prior to founding Freedom, I was a researcher and faculty member at UNC-Chapel Hill and Carnegie Mellon University.

I've spent most of my career studying and building systems to support the complex interactions that people have with technology at scale. I hold a Ph.D. in Information Science (HCI), and degrees in Survey Research and Economics from UNC-Chapel Hill. Aditionally, I've completed postdoctoral work in Behavioral Economics at CMU.

Previously, I co-founded ClaimID, a distributed social identity provider, served as director of technology for Ibiblio.org, and have worked in industry and as a consultant. When I'm not working, I'm either hanging out with my three boys, or serving as pack fodder on a local training ride.
