Hi, I'm Dakota

Iā€™m a hyper-curious creative driven by a deep love of design, technology, and storytelling.

After attending a small art school for fiction writing, I spent the first several years of my career at magazines that include American Craft, Monkeybicycle, Paper Darts, and Yoga International. I love learning about new ways to tell meaningful narratives on the web: especially hybrid approaches that mix data, design, and interaction into participatory experiences that are accessible to everyone.

I currently work as a front-end engineer, with a UI/UX focus that includes in-depth experience with design systems, accessibility, and web animation.

And when I'm not coding? I love to spend time creating minimalist illustrations of plants.
