As a designer, I've worked with places like Twitter, Pinterest and Dropbox, both as a full-time employee and a freelancer, on product and brand projects. As a writer, I've written essays for Fast Company, Offscreen Magazine and Lean Out. My first novel won first place for literary fiction in the Writer's Digest Self-Published e-book awards. I'm working on my second novel, which will be up for pre-order on May 13th.
A range of recent projects and essays:
- Wild Woman Road Trip: I drove across the US twice with my little husky/jack russell pup. Stories and gear from the road.
- Amulet:Karl and I are making the most beautiful way to catalogue and learn more about your crystals
- The Firesteel: My first novel, a time-bending story about memory and nostalgia.
- "How Ordinary Tech Workers Can Improve The Industry's Diversity"
This is an AMA, so sky's the limit, but if you want to know more about living dat independent life, working in tech or publishing books, or how to travel with a snowdog mix without drowning in hair, this is your time!
I'll be back around 10AM Pacific time on the 10th to answer questions, and will pop in periodically the rest of the afternoon.
EDIT: Thanks for your questions, I'll be in and out the rest of the afternoon, so feel free to leave one or ask follow ups!
