I’m a technologist and writer living in Chicago. I write fiction and nonfiction, publish a fortnightly newsletter and co-host a podcast. I'm also currently pursuing a degree in Film and Television at DePaul University.
I have a background as a front-end web developer, tech educator and a diversity and inclusion advocate. In 2011, I founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It, a nonprofit organization aimed at providing coding classes for women, and in 2013 I founded and taught Code and Cupcakes Chicago, a series of coding workshops for mothers and daughters that now offers open-sourced curriculum and workshop guides. I have spoken widely about web design and development, diversity/inclusion and tech education (reach out if you want to learn about my past talks or have a speaking opportunity to offer).
