Hi, I'm Tev'n Powers.

I design and build all sorts of things on the web.

These days you'll find me creating websites that feature data-driven storytelling, visual essays, and interactive data visualizations.

Previously, I was an applied data scientist at Microsoft, where I developed language models, crowd data annotation tools, and other features . I also worked at Textio , a startup that builds enterprise writing software, both as an engineering manager and as a senior software engineer responsible for everything from data processing to prototyping and shipping new language features.

With over a decade of professional experience spanning web and mobile app development, data science, and computational linguistics, I'm always seeking new challenges. I find joy in collaborating with partners that think critically and creatively about building technology that empowers, educates, and excites their audiences.

I’m available to work with individuals and organizations of all sizes for contract and part-time opportunities. Let's talk!

Current Projects

  • In collaboration with the Equity Research Cooperative , I am in the process of building a visual essay and data dashboard for higher education researchers.
  • I’m currently working with to build PATCH--a mobile app that supports a “nationwide network of mobile crisis teams, health and social services, and abolitionist organizations responding to crises with care, not violence.”
