About Me

MakerHomeLabberPolyglotActuallyAutisticIntersectionalityBuild relationshipsScienceTechnologyEngeeringMathematicsAmbivertAsk CultureMindsetAspiring-EntrepreneurMusicianGamifierLife-HackerLively Team Spirit

I've got a quirky, pleasant demeanor. I do best regardless of the tech stack or type of software being developed, as long as it's with the right team at the right company. I believe that leadership and culture create one another. So to me, I'd be comfortable in any position, even non-technical, as long as it's with the right troupe. I've got an ambiverted personality style. When I balance my efforts, I easily contribute at my best to drive our team goals forward. Outside work, I play music, do outdoor activities, learn the languages of the world, attend open mic performances, travel, self-educate, make robots, tinker with HAM radio, and do daytime social activities with friends. I've got a service mindset, an entrepreneurial spirit, and an attitude of gratitude. I'm a Linux geek and contributor to open source. I aspire to speak at a TED talk or similar in order to inspire others.

Ideal Workplace Values

Consistent work expectations, people-first workplace culture, team-oriented environment, womxn-led, queer-allied, respectful, compassionate, mission-driven, transparent, education-focused, collaborative, pro-growth


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

My neurodiversity has the advantage of helping others think outside of the circle; not simply outside the box. For a visual aid, please refer to an image of a "Circmcircle of a Square" while I clarify. My unique blend of neurodiversity is perpetually making active use of both hemispheres of the brain (creative and logical). I am grateful for this gift, and that's why I have built skills and habits to practice applying it as such. In combination with my daily practice in managing it, the style of my work is unconventional yet effective by design. My neurodivergance allows me to have have a natural ability to quickly learn how to translate, given sufficient time and environment for the context at hand. This includes translations among humans (cultures, linguistics, etc.), among machines (compilers, ETL, etc.), and between the humans and machines (forward and reverse engineering). This also includes a naturally ability to strategically architect large-scale changes towards high-impact growth. I challenge historical practices and prefer custom tailored solutions that are also modular, re-usable, and inclusive of future-proofing. That's why I prefer augment the the S.T.E.M. acronym to include Relationships, Entrepreneurship, and Art. This goes beyond the skill set for a full-stack engineer. I prefer to describe my neurodivergance-advantaged skill set as a "Directed Acyclic Graph"-shaped STEAMER professional. In other words, a "full-stack" is too limiting a scope. You may be wondering, "What does all this say about her neurodiversity as an advantage?" or "How does geometry have anything to do with this?" To answer these and sum it all up, please allow me to call upon the work I've done with some of my mentors in health, finance, business, and lifestyle. All of us are "creatures of habit" Habits can be modeled as a cycle/pattern of actions. If we keep thinking outside the box, we are ignoring critical points in our pattern because the box has corners which conceal more than 3 other sectors to observe, explore, and question. But once we achieve thinking outside this box, we we still need to think outside the circle. Fortunately, I was privileged with a brain that didn't notice the box and drew its own circle in the first place. Pair this with balancing practice of left-brain and right-brain skills, big-picture and detail oriented thinking, hard and soft skills, work-alone and with others, et cetera. Translating it to the right context can cause huge results.
