Make an impact with me in these local things (Durham, NC, or take it to your area):
- Web Divas Club – like a local Girls Who Code, for middle schoolers. I started this at a school here in Durham, and I’m sharing resources so you can start your own local club.
- Trashercize – a goofy project that I’m just having fun with: picking up trash for exercise, Prancercise style!
By email, I’m email@example.com (the best way to reach me). I’m also katie.benedetto on Skype.
I live in Durham, North Carolina, USA with my husband Andy. We’re both web developers. His empire consists of SurveyShare (build online surveys) and PennyPipe (sync payment data, like Stripe, with accounting software, like Quickbooks).
I'm a University of North Carolina (MS, math + computer science) and William & Mary (BS, math + art) alumna. I used to live in my left brain as a mathie. I got into math because it was beautiful, like art, and pure. The brain-stretching of my math days shaped me to be a more open-minded person.
In 2009, I started my web development business, Yellow Rubber Ball, and I’ve been doing that ever since, with various adventures on the side – like Critter.Co and Critter Cuddles. Why the critters? Because I have the belief that we are all, at our coreyest core, made of the same stuff – love stuff – and I wanted to share that idea. We are all critters.
I’m an Enneagram 1w2, INFP/HSP with the enthusiasm of a Zumba instructor (which I am*). Energy that burns brightly though quickly, so catch it while you can. Leo sun. Libra moon. Fascinate catalyst. My artistic heroes are Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss and Explodingdog. Crazy Monster is my spirit animal.
I think we that while we build boxes to feel safe and have a place to start, people and things are better understood holistically. I’d like to see more models that incorporate relationships and negotiations in intention. I think real safety comes from openness and letting go = choosing to have faith in ourselves, in each other, and in the process of life.
I like collecting experiences. I learn a lot from constantly trying new things and doing ordinary things differently. Some of my favorites: I poured my heart & soul into a startup, I shaved my head, I PRed a marathon when I hadn’t been able to run a mile the week before, I became an artist, I took a round-the-world trip solo.
My passion is the quest towards feeling more connected with myself and with the world. It’s a convenient favorite thing, because life provides opportunities for it every moment of every day.
Speaking of connection:How can I connect you with what you want?
Have you read the balloon story, about connecting each other with what we’re looking for? I like that. If there’s a way I can help you, please ask. I will, too.
