Hi, I am
👩🏾🦱 About Me
10yrs in information technology. I live breathe and sleep tech. I love interactive technology projects. I make things happen. I get things done. Plan to spend my retirement to become a recognized Ramen chef and teach tech as a side hustle. Don’t challenge me in Karaoke, I’m confident I will win. My friends tell me I captivate a room when I talk. I believe that’s true.
📆 These Days
I am looking for fulltime or part-time remote work. Keeping all of my options open. I find myself in the space of remote work, freelancing, machine learning, and Ai. All very different than my 10 years of IT, but I am excited about these new learnings.
💼 Worked for
Google, J Crew, Optimist, Nike, The Black Car Fund, HP, Morgan Stanley, UBS, Per Scholas, tarte Cosmetics, The Brooklyn Museum, American Book Sellers Association, BounceX, and more.
🧼 Humbly Worked Nights & Weekends As
A Janitor at a prestigious music school in Brooklyn, home cleaner, french crepe maker, supermarket cashier, a dog sitter, babysitter, hairstylist (coloring and extensions), virtual assistant, and task runner. One time a guy paid me $300 as a task runner to go buy his girlfriend a cupcake because he forgot her birthday.
