Community. Code. Collaboration.

About naomi

I empower people and possibility through technology. 

I bring together two core areas of expertise: community building and code. These are nestled on top of a foundation in communication. University education in Creative Writing, Rails training from Shopify and experience as a social entrepreneur, community event founder and fellow on the Obama campaign allow me to bring a broad range of skills, perspectives and bridging to projects. 


Some ways I do this bridge work:

  • as an idea broker
  • as a programming teacher
  • as a community manager & organizer
  • as a software developer in social impact projects
  • as a partner manager in larger companies

Happy to connect with anyone who's interested in working together, or if you want to learn more about any of my areas of work or any of the projects I've done. Feel free to send me questions! Would love to hear from you.
