Robyn OverstreetAlumni, Class of 2005
I design and build custom content management systems, including CMSes for Flash. I also specialize in customizing WordPress for use as a CMS.
I teach web development in many different contexts, from corporate trainings to community groups, to one-on-one tutoring.
I come to technology from a background as a writer. I studied poetry and wrote poems. My undergraduate degree is in Creative Writing and I did some graduate work in Poetry at The City College of New York. My focus was in formal verse — poems in traditional forms such as the sonnet and sestina.
I live in San Francisco now, after close to 10 years in New York. I think I’ll always be more of a New Yorker, but I’m giving the West Coast a try. I appreciate the cleaner air and the slower pace, that’s for sure. But I’d choose subways over cars any day.
