I get excited about connecting people and creating spaces for them to have a voice. It's really fulfilling. I'm pretty good at getting people to open up. <- -> ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/5j6969a6cnhtqeo/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2014.52.28.png?dl=0) I left a background in humanities to join tech, which felt a bit odd at first. But now I love it, because I truly believe technology is about *improving how we live.* ##### In fact, it's merging humanities with technology that adds more meaning to what I do. One inspires the other. <- -> ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/gbr899zf599a637/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2015.27.29.png?dl=0) <- ->I get real giddy when people discover Swipe, because it means I've done my job well. <- ->![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/6vjnkxrl3c2ipuh/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2015.07.14.png?dl=0)<- -> ### I also run a website called [Subtitles Please](http://www.subtitlesplease.co.uk/). I created it because I wanted to solve my own problems: How to be a better person? * How to help others? * What's the best way to learn? ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/da2mxguc4hc4dwd/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2015.03.07.png?dl=0) Turns out other people have the same problems. So many have contributed to this cause. I'm very thankful! ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/6418vw0hg757d0i/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2015.18.23.png?dl=0) ### Previously, I was the managing editor of arts publication [ROOMS](http://www.roomsmagazine.com/) ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/xrdmlhvmy8pperf/Screenshot%202015-11-04%2012.00.41.png?dl=0) ![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/zbsmh17mqverebi/Screenshot%202015-11-04%2011.57.49.png?dl=0) An independent print/online magazine that thrives on the newest and most daring art around. It's unapologetic and honest - totally up my alley. <- ->![title](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/s6xjpk2k3u8plq4/Screenshot%202015-11-03%2015.23.01.png?dl=0)<- -> #### If you want someone who gets out of her comfort zone, likes taking risks and is bags of fun, look no further. ![title](https://storage.googleapis.com/b.swipeusercontent.com/1R775UPcjL4LPCMEpwAfRbe4szKpwp-597.png) *(This is how community building starts)* Ta-da!
