Hi, I'm Cole

I'm an MA in English Literature student at Oregon State University with a background in literary studies, computer science, and digital humanities. I like building things - websites, datasets, data visualizations, programs, papers - and talking about the making process.

I've worked in numerous IT and development roles within large corporations, small businesses, and universities. I'm currently looking for a position as a web developer with a university or organization where I can immediately make an impact while honing my skills.

Find out more about me or my work, or hire me to get some help with yours.

Built With Love

I'm part of a dying breed: the generalist. I'm interested in artificial intelligence and eighteenth-century poetry, punk rock and personal finance. My projects reflect that breadth: I build with a variety of tech stacks, work on both the front and back ends, and am always ready to learn.

Blog Time

Sometimes I build things, sometimes I write, and sometimes I write about building things. Head over to my blog (currently under construction) where I post thoughts about web development, digital humanities projects and the DH community, academia, travel, and more.


Proven Quality

I'm interested in bridging the gap between technology and the humanities through a meaningful making process, and my academic and employment record reflects a variety of interdisciplinary achievements and positions. Check out my resume to see for yourself.
