Fantastic question, Sir/Madam/Undecided!
I am a human that likes to learn, teach, and create.
I'm currently in a 4 month Tibetan Buddhism retreat, learning techniques for relaxation, meditation, and emotional transformation.
In my past lives, I've...
- Founded a company with my partner that puts on events in the bay area to bring people together for genuine fun and deep connection.
- Created the computing curriculum for Khan Academy and coded the platform to deliver it.
- Founded the GirlDevelopIt SF chapter and created much of its CC-licensed curriculum.
- Written oodles of code for Coursera, as its 2nd frontend engineer.
- Worked in both Google Mountain View & Google Australia, doing developer relations for the Maps API and Wave APIs.
- Been a bachelors & masters student in the USC Computer Science Department, with minors in 3d Animation + Linguistics.
- If you'd like to report a bug or a feature request with the Khan Academy platform,
please use ZenDesk,
since I am no longer a KA engineer.
- If you would like me to give a talk, please keep in mind that I'm not actively coding right now so I have no hot-topic technical talks for you, and since I do not have an employer that can pay for my travel or time off, I have to say no to most requests.
If you're still keen on sending me a message after reading all that, go for it! You can use this form.
