Hi, I'm Soren.

I'm here to help.

As a civic technologist, I care about turning groundbreaking computing tools into assets for the public. Focused primarily on leveraging data science, blockchain, and virtual/augmented/mixed reality for social and civic good, I help strategize projects that connect people to organizations, to governments, and to each other.

Currently, I'm a Microsoft Civic Innovation Fellow, and I'm also working on an MS in data science at the Illinois Institute of Technology. In my spare time, I'm a member of the web development collective indigoBox Studios and I manage WIIT 88.9FM, a historic radio station serving much of Chicago's south side.
