Joanna tries to be a wordsmith, thinks of herself as a maker and has been called a splendid turner of phrases. She is a communicator by nature and a public relations professional by nurture. She spent years helping develop lowly startups and tech giants alike as well as promoting live music and art. She is a philosopher on the weekends but only when she’s not bopping around looking for local music. She is a techie who hates the word techie and spends most nights giving a side-eye at her workout equipment while binge-watching Arrested Development and D.I.Y.-ing. Most recently, she’s a Las Vegas transplant by way of San Francisco and probably on her way to Taco Bell right now.
