Hi, there!

My name is Zach and I am interested in the connections between science, design, and data. I enjoy making things and sharing knowledge.

Here are some things about me.



  • MS in Data Science from Columbia University
  • BA in Neuroscience from Boston University
    • Minor in Computer Science
    • Magna Cum Laude


  • I work with data, but I also play with data. I’m making Observable Notebooks, which are interactive javascript notebooks that make it easy to start exploring while still allowing for amazing possibilities. Looking into these in an effort to better communicate data findings/understanding and spark curiosity. And to just have some fun.
  • I started making icons for Noun Project after wanting some icon headers for a project I worked on over the summer in grad school. Thousands of icons later, it has turned into a fun hobby.
  • I have made a T-shirt shop called Designed By a Nerd, full of some fun ideas I wanted for myself, the kinds of things where I would want to say “hey, i like your shirt”. Made with love by an outgoing introvert.

Hope you’re having a great day on the internet. Thanks for stopping by!

Darn! That’s the end!
