Hi, my name is Lynne. Born and raised in Florida, I’m a proud University of Florida alumna. (Go Gators!) Last year, I moved to New York to learn about the start-up community; this blog serves as my unassuming diary on Silicon Alley’s intricate and ever-evolving startup ecosystem. All opinions stated are my own and unaffiliated.
For 2 years, I reported on television locally in Gainesville, nationally for ABC On Campus, and started my own web series CampusTweet.TV. A few months before graduating from the University of Florida, I grew bored of my own newscast and began questioning my motives for television stardom.
My attention began to wander beyond the TV screen to the wacky World Wide Web. After college, I traveled through Europe while teaching English in Italy for a great organization called ACLE. Back in the States, I moved to New York and helped two entrepreneurs adopt social and digital media into their business strategy. Soon after, I became Venture for America‘s Recruitment and Media Associate, where I helped connect enterprising college graduates to high-impact startups in lower-cost communities.
Now, I’m returning to my roots. My ultimate aspiration is to be a storyteller, weaving technology, ideas, education, and storytelling together as a means for inspirational good. In due time, I will unveil plans that bring life to these dreams. Stay tuned.
