May 15, 2021 • This day served as the closure to a book that should’ve been closed to a year prior (actually graduated last May) but something called a pandemic hit our country disabling a long waited in-person graduation. Well, 5 years beforehand I stood on the stage of my high-school graduation to deliver a message as a valedictorian about staying true to yourself and not allowing anyone to stand in your way. I wanted to do something similar but applicable for my college @coloradoschoolofmines gradation and applied to be the student speaker but was not chosen. Well… that is not going to stop this black engineer that fought through trialing years at a PWI from sharing my message with you all. And yes, Black Lives STILL Matter. ✊🏾👨🏾‍🎓
Say their names

Attended GiantConf 2015

This was an amazing UX conference in South Carolina.

Unfortunately, what I remember most strongly from it was hiding in the bathroom of my hotel room, checking Twitter obsessively, while in lockdown under police orders with little information because of an active shooter just blocks away.

I later learned that this was the Charleston church massacre. Nine innocent Black folks lost their lives that day.
