Hi, there. I'm Julia.

I'm a front-end engineer and product designer based in Omaha, Nebraska.

With a background in journalism and information technology, I'm interested in creating applications that support the news industry and empower community change.

Currently the Director of Product and Technology at the Institute for Nonprofit News, I was previously a Knight-Mozilla fellow with the Center for Investigative Reporting. Before that I worked for Oxide Design, Gallup News, ConAgra Brands, and the Omaha World-Herald.
