Hi! I'm Tyler. I'm a designer and engineer that makes tools for learning and creativity. I care a lot about helping people be expressive and making complicated stuff accessible.
I'm currently a product designer at Replit, making coding easier and more collaborative. Before that, I spent some time at the MIT Media Lab prototyping new ways for kids to brainstorm in Scratch. In a previous life, I did my master's in education at Harvard, studied computer science and researched NLP at Emory, and researched mobile health apps at Georgia Tech.
I'm most interested in low-barrier creative tools (art, music, math, writing, code), knowledge management, learning sciences, data science, and bio-inspired design and computer science.
Hard skills: web and mobile development, UI and UX design, graphic design, data visualization, research, data science, writing.
Söft skills: mainly being awful with directions.
Besides the more detailed case studies on here, I also recently published some essays (and blog on Replit):
I also keep a running list of band names that come out randomly in conversations. If you're a friend of mine and you think I'm missing one of our band names from this list, please text me
