✨ design for disconnect
✨ build extensibly
✨ simplify – then simplify again
✨ narrow the digital divide
✨ make something the world needs

She speaks globally about #mindfultech, has been written about by The New York Times, The Telegraph, and Entrepreneur Magazine, and has worked with clients ranging from VOGUE Magazine and Bergdorf Goodman to Amazon and Microsoft.
