I’m Angie and I'm an entrepreneur and problem solver with a soft spot for tech, social justice, and empathy-led design. My background is in history and tech.

I’m currently living and working in Oakland as the founder of Reboot America, an Oakland non-profit that brings together technologists and policy think-tanks to build public safety solutions. Think of Reboot as the action to existing research and discourse.

I've previously worked as an Engineer Team Support Coordinator at Dropbox, the Developer Relations Manager at Zendesk, interim CEO for BASA Delivery, and an Account Manager at CodeHS.

I spend my time taking photographs, prototyping solutions, teaching myself everything, and musing about life (usually on Medium).

If you're interested in working together, contact me!
