Something cool you’ve worked on recently: I’ve created meet up groups for open mic night to give people the support they need to go on stage and express themselves. Whether it’s through poetry, music or storytelling. I think that’s pretty cool.

What’s your favorite Microsoft product right now and why?
My Xbox One is my favorite product!  This allows me to stay connected with my family since they live all over the US. I can play video games or watch movies with my niece and nephews while Skyping them at the same time. I can also help them with their homework using Skype.

What’s your favorite part about working at the Microsoft Store?
My favorite part is meeting new people and creating friends. Microsoft allows you to visit other stores and not only bestow knowledge upon each other, but gain a friend. I’ve met some amazing people in different Microsoft Store locations throughout my years with this company and I’m thrilled to call them friends for life!

What is one problem you’d like to see technology solve?
I think technology can truly help bring awareness about suicide and stop bullying. Using technology can allow those in need to stay connected with those facing the same issues. Creating more websites, using Skype, chat rooms, application for mobile devices, and music. Knowing someone is always there for you no matter what time or day.
