I’m Angie and I'm a tech aficionado who loves building community and bringing people together. With a background in history, I'm always finding ways to use tech to further social good and solve societal issues. That and I love talking nerdy to just about anyone.

As an advocate for diversity and inclusion, I regularly speak and write on the topic, helping companies reimagine their internal culture. I'm also the founder of Reboot America, an Oakland-based non-profit that builds comprehensive community solutions by bringing together technologists and researchers. Think of Reboot as the action to existing research and discourse.

I currently live in Oakland and work as the Director of Community for Lesbians Who Tech, a global community of over 40,000 gender non-conforming, LGBTQ women + allies in tech, and the National Tech Jobs Tour, a cross-country workforce development tour promoting economic opportunity and filling 100K tech jobs. 

Previously I've 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.
