Before Grace Hopper

I’m on my way to Grace Hopper right now, which I’ve never been to before. My employer is actually paying to send me. Paying for my hotel and my flight (and the Wi-Fi which allows me to write this post) and paying me for the time I spend enriching myself here. I’m so honored and… Continue reading Before Grace Hopper

My pals Doug, Jeff, and Ashley over at SoundOff are in Round Two of fundraising, this time for… Continue reading Support Live Captioning at UIKonf

I started a job at Microsoft last month. That’s right, I’m no longer an online dating coach! Now I’m a full-time Program Manager, working with early access customers to improve our products. I’m SO excited. (You might be surprised that I’m leaving behind the company I’ve built over the course of a decade, but the… Continue reading Back to Big Tech :)
