Hi. I'm Steve Leathers.
I live in Portland, Oregon. I love it here.
I work on the Data Science team at a digital agency called Swift. I study large quantities of data to provide insights that inform marketing strategy for our clients: Google, Adidas, Starbucks, and others.
Prior to working at Swift, I worked for an urban planning and design consulting firm for a little over six years. You can see some of my work here.
I also help out with Design Week Portland.
In previous years, I've built projects for Open Engagement, a Social Practice Art conference. These have included JOYOGRAPHY (a map-based web application to in consideration of joy and space), AFFIRMATION HOTLINE (an 800-number that tells you nice things), and ARE YOU YOUR WORK? (a web-form and museum display protocol pertaining to work and identity).
Do resumés still matter? I'm not sure. Maybe they do. If you are interested, here is my resumé.
