Digital Public History

In 2014 I began a digital public history project with colleague Garrett Dash Nelson, thanks to a grant from the UW-Madison Center for Humanities Public Humanities Exchange. The product of our project, Goodman to Garver (, is an interactive mapping website that allows users to contribute to recording the history of Madison's East Side by sharing and learning stories about the formerly industrial area. The website is meant to serve as a kind of digital preservation, and it builds on findings about preservation, landscape history, and public memory that emerged from my master's thesis: Redefining Historical Significance: Toward New Possibilities for Preservation at Madison's Sugar Castle.

Maps and Infographics

In 2016, I had the opportunity to make, with Garrett Dash Nelson, the maps for Brian Goldstein's book The Roots of Urban Renaissance: Gentrification and the Struggle over Harlem.

Below are maps and infographics I designed for courses at UW-Madison. In 2013 I received Honorable Mention for the National Geographic Award in Mapping, for my map "Where to Play? Access to Parks for American Urban Youth, 2012." This map also received the UW-Madison Department of Geography's Barbara Bartz Petchenik Memorial Graduate Award in Cartographic Design.
