Community. Prom. Philippines.

I’m starting to love it here in South Philly. I’m really feeling a sense of community since I moved.

Unfortunately, I’ve found it to be a bit lacking when I’m trying to test the “feel” […]

What are your commuting habits?

I recently did a lunch and learn at my co-working space, and these are the slides that I used. This post is a little different from the content in the slides, but the gist is the same. Hope you enjoy reading it! I’ve seen a lot of wonderful data visualizations on websites like Flowing Data […]
