hi, i'm keith!

Just a queer web developer living in San Francisco. I spend my time eating 🍕🌯, traveling to far off places 📷, playing video/board games 🎮 and creating fun things with gifs.

I’m passionate about projects that connect government to it’s citizens.


Leading an engineering team at Nava, a public benefit corporation creating software that helps government create simple and accessible services for everyone. That sounds like a bunch of jargon, it means I'm fortunate enough to lead a diverse team of talented engineers building tools for government to better serve everyone. We're focused on services that improve the safety net.

My team leads the effort for the next generation insurance application on healthcare.gov, working with our partners in the government to make something that anyone can use.


Was a Code for America fellow, working with the New York City Mayor's Office of Operations. Conducted research and built tools for social workers to better understand and help their clients. Launched open source projects like CityBook for cities to better organize their resources.
