Time for Change: from charity: water to Hillary for America

July 9, 2015

In a few short weeks, I will be leaving charity: water to join Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign as her new Director of Product. I will be working under her exceptionally talented CTO & CPO along with an amazing group of women & men to create digital products around donation, fundraising, volunteering, grassroots engagement, field organization and election analytics, all in pursuit of putting Secretary Clinton into the White House.

Goodbye SF/Hello New York

October 7, 2013

It is so strange to type these words – but last Friday was my last day at Adobe. There are very few companies I’d ever consider leaving Adobe for, but recently I volunteered at a New York-based company called charity: water, and fell in love. They use technology to bring clean & safe drinking water to millions of people in developing countries and I am moving to New York to join their leadership team as Director of Product.

Summer 2013: Where I’m Going

June 19, 2013

In a few short days I start a 7 week sabbatical from Adobe spending it at the heart of everything that is: New York City. I will be going to hackathons, design meetups, music performances, plays, movies in parks, art shows, broadway shows, standup shows & improv shows. I want to visit the offices of Behance, Tumblr, Etsy, General Assembly, FiftyThree, Art.sy and so many more. I want to eat at every David Chang/Momofuku restaurant. I want to drink Stumptown coffee every day, learn the subway system and wear those true summer outfits I am lucky to wear once in SF. I want to talk to as many people as I can who are using technology in whatever way possible to improve the world, just because.

Take a moment to do some social good

October 6, 2011

My wonderful friend, a fellow techie and all around inspiring, creative and passionate dude, Amit Gupta, has recently been diagnosed with leukemia. He’s the man behind amazing things like Jelly, the photospectactular mailing list/blog Photojojo and the recent new venture: Material. If you’re a fan of any of these sites, a fan of Amit himself, or a survivor of AML – please take a moment read this.

Late Night Coding

November 17, 2010

I remember back in college I would sit down in lab (at Berkeley the undergraduate computer labs were basically dungeons set two floors underground) and start working on a project and glance up and realize 8 hours had passed by in a flash.

Apologies, non-Flex post, but I had to share since this really made me laugh for like 5 minutes this morning.

I have never been so full of joy, hope, inspiration and pride at what America did last night in electing Barack Hussein Obama the 44th President of the United States.

My tire got stuck in between the tracks and I fell…hard…my face went right into the curb. Right after I realized I had totally broken the build.

Where have I been?

May 19, 2008

I know, iamdeepa has been very quiet lately. This is because I’m heads down working on the Flex 3 for Dummies book.
