Carolyn Chong

I live in Hamilton, which is in Canada.

I have four delightful brothers and a basset hound named Bramble.

I rowed varsity in university and coached, too.

I love seeing the smiles on the faces of kids learning how to code.

I have spent summers learning about life from at-risk youth in the Canadian backcountry.

I come armed with a liberal arts degree.

I did a second major in CS.

I am working with some awesome people right now to solve a problem that pains us all.

I lead Product at, and we recently joined the 500 Startups family.

I have had the pleasure of speaking at some cool conferences and panels.

I am obsessed with words, and the power of conversational interfaces.

There is no problem that empathy cannot solve.

I am on LinkedIn if you're into that sort of thing.

Let's chat :)
