More About Me

A little about me...

Profile Picture

I am curious about all aspects of technology; from research to designing and programming interfaces; to understanding how they are perceived and used.

I am passionate about discovering new ways of using existing/cutting-edge technology to solve everyday challenges. I am also interested in discovering how everyday tasks and skill can be redefined to give birth to new experiences (...and as such I am still researching on how crochet might cause the next digital revolution).

I am actively involved in encouraging and empowering young girls and women to harness the power of technology. Outside of the digital world, I have a very passionate & involved relationship with words (a.k.a I am a writer, currently working on my first short-story). I can also be found \'crocheting\' berets, baby booties & circle scarfs.
