TEECOM first sparked Ellen’s interest after she discovered us on an iOS podcast called Core Intuition. The rest is history. Ellen is now a Software Developer and creates iOS apps, Apps for Buildings, at TEECOM. When she builds an app, Ellen likes to focus on the design aspect to create an ideal user experience. She wants it to be easy and fun to use and look attractive and inviting.
Ellen is a Nintendo and board game nut. She is such a fangirl that she even sports a Zelda triforce tattoo on her wrist. She lives for hosting board game nights, and her guests can expect a night full of strategy board games like Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. Playing games in adulthood reminds Ellen of being a kid, and, let’s be honest, we all need a little childhood comfort from time to time!
Ellen can usually be found at a concert supporting local musicians or performing at an open mic. She plays acoustic guitar, piano, sings, and writes her own music. She started piano lessons when she was 4 years old, and at 15 picked up an acoustic guitar and taught herself how to play. While Ellen may consider her own personal style as alternative or indie, she loves rap and hip-hop as well.
Ellen is a city rider. She sports a road bike, a Raleigh Super Cruiser from the 70s, and a fixie, the Retrospec Saint Urban Bike, around town. The thrill of speed and fighting through traffic on the main streets is a scary yet exhilarating thrill ride that makes Ellen feel more connected to the city she is biking in.
