Iron Yard Austin

Throughout 2015-2017

The Iron Yard was a code school in Austin that helped various types of people transition into their first development or design job. I primarily worked with students for mock interviews but was also fortunate enough to sit on their Board of Directors and share my opinion on curriculum choices around primarily design but also development.

Techstars Startup Next Program

Mid 2016

I was very lucky to be a part of the Startup Next program in Austin. Throughout 6 weeks I met with various startups a few times and was able to listen to concerns and offer encouragement and feedback. The teams produced a ton in a short amount of time and it was a blast to see the growth.
