I’m an internet geek and have been since 1993. I’m insatiably curious about how we experience our spaces, peers, and work. I like to think of my self of a unicorn made of systems thinking, deep tech knowledge, superior soft skills, and anime references.
Hi! I’m Lisa, and I live for roadtrips with my kids, an always-on internet connection, and creative spaces. I began my career in higher education, and from there journeyed through self-taught web developer, software applications trainer slash full-time faculty member, and consultant. That variety of hats gave me a distinctly user-focused perspective of everyday technology and how effectively addressing stakeholders’ needs can help achieve established business goals.
I love speaking to business groups, elected officials, and students about understanding their customers and constituents, adopting open source tech for cost savings, branding and marketing, community development (online and off), and economic development based on local small businesses and technology entrepreneurship. If you’d like to have me out to your event or office, please contact me for booking info.
My Current Project:
MeetSuites is a project that has been rolling around in my head for a long time. I’ve definitely missed the opportunity to be first to market, but I have a few useful tricks up my sleeve, still. MeetSuites connects savvy professionals with unique and inspiring rooms and venues for meetings, classes, pop up shops, and space to create. This is my first project where I’ve managed the development from start to finish completely solo. I absolutely wanted to build it with WordPress, but it proved harder than it needed to be. So I’m going hard on MEAN stack and Ionic to produce it as a progressive web app. For updates and upcoming private beta invites, you can sign up at MeetSuites.co or follow along for the ride on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
