Hey, I'm Faye!
I’m a software engineer with a passion for making tech easy for the average person. I love doing this work because when I was growing up in the Bay Area, I had no idea that the tech industry was so lucrative! Here I was working minimum wage, and there was a whole other life that I could have!
One Day, I decided to go for it.
I learned how to code with no background in computer science. I broke into the tech industry and I want to show others that it’s possible. Even if you have no background in tech, you, too, can leverage these tools, your website, your applications, to create your dream life.
I’ve been working in the industry for 5 years. In that time, I started (and sunsetted) my own startup, worked a VC firm Backstage Capital, was employed at a VC-backed startup, and during that time worked with many entrepreneurs to build their websites and kickstart their businesses.
I want the same for you.
To help entrepreneurs, freelancers, and small business owners leverage technology to reach their revenue goals and grow their business.
