What is your superpower?
Inventing & designing things for people
What or who inspired your superpower?
A combination of things. Off the top of my head, a book called “How Things Work”, that had hand-painted illustrations of the internals of all sorts of technology, from elevators to submarines! That, combined with being obsessed with computers and video games, led me to designing websites, which led me to a masters in computer science, which led me to UX design, which led me here!
What has been one of your best inventions/creations?
My first company, Hardquarters. We were 18 and dumb, but it was super fun. Nothing online (that I’d link you to anyway hah). More recently, the Dough Universe app.
How has technology changed what you do and influenced your life?
My profession didn’t exist when I was born, so it changed everything. Technology shapes society which shapes my (our) life. It’s in everything I do, from waking up to going to sleep. Even during sleep, with new mattress technologies!
What is your favorite Tech Will Save Us kit and why?
