I’m a technologist and writer in Chicago. I write things here and there around the internet, although mostly here and in my weekly email newsletter called Modern Adventuress.
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. I have spoken widely about web design and development, diversity/inclusion and tech education, and I sometimes mentor beginning tech speakers from underrepresented minorities. I currently am a senior curriculum writer at Flatiron School.
I keep a comprehensive yearly media log if you're interested in the books, films, podcasts and performances I take in.
Chicago, IL 60613
I also have a mailing list where I send updates about what's going on with all my writing and projects at the end of each month. If you are looking for those details in a convenient format other than my weekly newsletter, it's just the thing for you.
