I am a Software Engineer who is passionate about diversity + inclusion, building communities, and (surprise) technology! I have an unconventional background in English, and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies. In a past life I dabbled in journalism as an opinions columnist and radio talk show host. Outside of work I spend a lot of time volunteering with various local nonprofits, as well as promoting STEM education / careers for women and other underrepresented minorities in the tech industry. I truly believe that technology [when developed with diverse perspectives, inclusion, and equity in mind] empowers us to change the world.
