One of my passions is good, local food. In 2010, my husband and I launched a Kickstarter campaign to help our friends at One Straw Farm, the largest organic farm in Maryland, use mobile technology to help with their farming operations. The project wasn’t funded, but we learned a lot in the process and had a ton of fun. I (quite sadly) abandoned this project to take my role at Microsoft and return to Seattle, but I am currently helping Joan and Drew explore other ways to use business intelligence and data visualization technologies to help make their business more profitable.
Our campaign garnered a lot of media attention. We were interviewed by the Baltimore Sun and also appeared on a local TV news station.
