Key Accomplishments

I bring to teams an unusually creative process for thinking differently about both technology and its interaction with people. I have over 15 years of deep consumer product experience, and I've built world-changing consumer products at high volumes (millions) with a strong hands-on approach during concept, development, and manufacturing. I believe in making a positive global impact both socially and technnologically, and this drive comes through in the way I build products and the respect I give the people I work with and the end customers who use my products.

Edward Crump
We worked together  •  Founder, StealthAR. Previously Sr Software Development Manager, Amazon Lab126. University of California, Santa Cruz grad.
I worked with Hannah at Amazon where she and I worked on new hardware/device initiatives. She's very resourceful, intelligent, has a strong ... bias for action, talks with data, and delivers excellent results quickly. Even though Amazon is a very large company, it encourages its employees to behave more like they are working in a start-up. Hannah demonstrated for years at Amazon that she is a great entrepreneur.
Forrest Jadick
They're my friends  •  Chief Executive Officer, Baypoint Automation, LLC. Previously Senior Developer, Application Engineering, Apple.
Hannah is one of the smartest and most driven people I know. She's a very hard worker and will bring success to any project through her abil ... ity to deeply understand the technical and operational challenges her organization is facing and then solve them using her highly analytical mind. On a personal level, she connects well with others and inspires the people around her with her passion for technology.
Vijay Manyam
We worked together  •  Senior Manager, Operations Engineering, Facebook. Previously Manager, Manufacturing Quality and Systems Engineering, Facebook.
Hannah would make a great entrepreneur because she's has always been full of good ideas and has many patents to show for it, she's also buil ... t a deep professional network over the years, and she's a strong leader.
