Web engineer, loyal domestique
The Web still feels like magic. More than 20 years in, I still love using code to turn a blank screen into something that can help people live better, more informed lives.
I am not into fashion, but “Project Runway” episodes always inspire me. Watching contestants tackle constraints and deadlines with such creativity puts me in a mood to creatively tackle my own challenges—whether visual designs or code problems—from new, oblique angles. Plus, Tim Gunn is such a perfect model for kind, empathetic mentorship.
As a White House intern, I worked on whitehouse.gov during the Clinton administration.
