In late 2013, along with a small team of volunteers, I helped organize the first women-only hackathon in the U.S. (as far as we know, but let me know if you know of one sooner, I'd love to hear about it). Thanks to all attendees and organizers! It was phenomenal.
National Day of Civic Hacking
Since 2013, I've helped organize National Day of Civic Hacking events in Washington, DC and Houston, TX. This includes scoping projects, gathering data and other resources for hackers, planning, logistics, and communications.
Program Director, the Dionysium
Ah, the Dionysium! This now-quarterly event at the Alamo Drafthouse was where I cut my teeth designing programming for events that people actually paid to see. From 2007 to 2009 I helped research, plan, book, and manage a monthly moderated debate and variety show, selling out the 200-seat theater on many occasions. Debate topics ranged from the serious ("Resolved: that the FCC should enforce net neutrality.") to the silly ("Resolved: that hip hop is dead." Spoiler: it isn't). It's still going strong. Go see the show if you're in Austin.
