You can find information about my experience and talks on my speaking page. Please reach out if you are interested in having me speak at your event.


Firebe.es is the home for my media projects — mostly involving comics and political cartoons. I'm not very good at it, but it makes me very happy.

Programming interview coaching

I occasionally help people prepare for technical interviews with interview coaching. I focus these efforts on underrepresented groups.

Diversity in tech education

I educate people about how to improve diversity in tech in a variety of ways including writing, public speaking, and discussion.

Past Projects

Girl Develop It Pittsburgh

I was the chapter leader for the Pittsburgh chapter of Girl Develop It. I also helped teach and TA classes throughout the year.

Steel City Ruby Conf

Member of the organizing committee in 2012 and 2013.

Tech speaker support group

I ran a semi-regular support group for people interested in getting help and ideas to speak at tech events and conferences for a couple years. The group focused on underrepresented speakers, but included people with a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience.

Battling the Invisible Monsters impostor syndrome support group

As a follow-up to my talk about impostor syndrome, I created an online support group for people to discuss impostor syndrome.
