Hi, I’m Dakota.

A developer who thrives at the intersection of design, storytelling, and technology.

For the last several years I've built intuitive web applications and advocated for the value of centering inclusive design. In my free time, I also love to draw minimalist illustrations of the outdoors and create interactive, participatory websites.

Before becoming a developer, I went to school for creative writing — and honed my skills as a journalist and essayist for magazines that include Yoga International, Paper Darts, American Craft, and Monkeybicycle plus the anthology The Way We Sleep.

Creative Work


I love it when technical writing is personal and silly and more concerned with making others feel comfortable — and even hyped — rather than asserting the author as an authority.
