What’s your next big thing?

Partnering with the Twin Cities Geekettes and Gr8Ladies on Hack the Gap was my last ‘big thing’ and now that that is mostly wrapped up, I’m off looking for my next big adventure.

What’s your why?

I’m working on building the life I want to live. I choose the clients and partners I want to work with. I decide how much sleep I need, and how to get it. I set up shop wherever it makes sense for me, and wherever I’ll be most productive. I decide when to turn off, and when to turn on. I don’t want a life of spending an arbitrary number of hours in an arbitrary 10×10’ space. I want a life that includes me having ample time to stay healthy and happy, to be with the people I love, and to work on things that matter to me personally.
