Wes Carroll
They're my friends  •  Founder and Chief Instructor, BodSAT Prep and Tutor / Owner, (Do The Math private tutoring services).
*Would* be? No, that doesn't seem right. Lin has many times reinvented her career with such speed and grace that it's a wonder to be that ... she doesn't have a magic wand and a wizard's hat. She has vision *and* grit *and* a good grip on reality. When was the last time I saw that combo?
Roberto Pieraccini
They're my advisor: UC Berkeley - ICSI  •  Director of Advanced Conversational Technologies, Jibo, Inc.. Previously World Traveler, On Sabbatical.
I have know Lin for several years, but only recently did I hire her as a business development expert while I was the the CEO of the Internat ... ional Computer Science Institute (ICSI) at Berkeley, CA. Lin understands well high-tech and the current landscape and ecosystem, on top of that she has a gift for understanding how to develop business. She is a great communicator, a fantastic advisor, and a proactive proposer of new strategies. It is always a pleasure to work with her.
Sanjay Mathur
We worked together at Accenture  •  Founder & CEO, Silicon Valley Data Science. Previously Senior Vice President, Product Management, LiveOps. Drexel grad.
Lin is tremendously intelligent, extremely passionate and a complete go-getter. She's focused on delivering results and being thoughtful ab ... out taking others on the journey. She's fine with stepping on toes sometimes, which any true entrepreneur must do at times to lead the way. I always enjoyed working with Lin and hold her in high regard.
Richard Stern
We worked together  •  Professor of Electrical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
I have known Lin since she was an undergraduate student at CMU. She is very bright, tech savvy, and a very good strategic thinker. She can ... organize and work on big projects and also manage them effectively. I strongly endorse Lin.with pleasure.

Julien Andrieux
We worked together  •  Supervisory Comitee Member, Nomios and Board Member, MCGROUP.
Julien is one of those rare people who have extraordinary abilities in both technical and commercial arenas. I love working with him becaus ... e he can truly see the big picture, and act in everyone's best interests accordingly.

Jonathan Luskin
We worked together  •  Playwright, PlayGround and Owner, Flying Moose Pictures. Cornell grad. NYU grad.
Jonathan is scary smart in multiple dimensions: artistically, technically, and in his ability to get things done. I adore working with him ... because he inspires me to be my better self, and to really reach for and achieve what's possible. I recommend him wholeheartedly as a collaborator, contractor, or work partner.
