About Me

Welcome to my very small corner of the Internet!

I've been sleeping, eating and breathing computer programming since middle school, and I'm proud to have led a varied, interesting career in tech since the '90s.

A frequent guest panelist on topics such as diversity in technology, education/career development, and Doctor Who, my home/life passions also include tennis, international travel, storytelling, and LGBTQIA+ activism.

I proudly live in the borough of Brooklyn, NY with my husband and our many Apple devices. 


I am a certified tennis fanatic who has been playing, watching, studying, and coaching the game for over 35 years.

A volley-loving doubles specialist who prefers slow hard courts and clay surfaces, I currently volunteer as a coach at the Highland Park Tennis Association (Brooklyn, NY) and during the annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day at the US Open. My past affiliations have been with GLTA member organizations in New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.


A proud alumnus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, over the years I've volunteered in many different capacities, from admissions interviewer to local club board member to AAAVC Co-Chair and Steering Committee member. 

While a student, I worked every semester in the Computer Science department, first as a programming coach and later as a department Intern. A two-time summer URSI participant, I also was the first freshman to successfully skip first-year (100-level) CS.
