From New York Fashion Week to International CES, April has seen the latest and greatest that two polarizing industries have to offer! April started her career as a menswear stylist and visual merchandiser for brands such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2013, she chose to pivot from a career in fashion to a new career in technology. Her first true introduction to the tech world was an intern and later a business application specialist with Consumer Technology Association – producers of the world’s largest consumer technology trade show, International CES. Since her days of attending International CES, April harnessed a deeper connection to the tech world by developing a passion for AI assistants and more recently spatial computing. Today, she is a Cloud advocate at Microsoft working alongside peers in spatial computing.
Aware of the complexities which come with pivoting careers, April began to help those on the journey to a career in tech by creating Computer Club – a platform which contains articles on career transition and tutorial content for those interested in getting started with programming. In July 2020, her first children’s Python programming book Bite-Size Python: An Introduction to Python Programming will be available in stores and online. Whenever she’s not creating content, you can find her roaming Rodeo Dr. and shopping in Beverly Hills.
