Laney Coletti was born in Subic Bay, Philippines on September 27, 1987. As a military brat, she's been well-traveled since the age of 2 and has lived in many places, including Japan, Hawaii, and the US Southwest. After studying Web Design & Development at ASU, Laney headed to NYC with $138 in her pocket (ballsy move) to carve her career as a developer in both the non-profit and new media worlds. Today, Laney embraces many hats in the tech industry, with focus on guiding tech teams to maximize their workflows and build on social / human capital.
When she's not creating cool websites or coaching techies - she enjoys playing music in a rock band; exploring the world; cooking the amazing Filipino recipes her mom taught her as a child (lumpia, adobo, sinigang, you name it); eating great food; hanging out with David; making it in NYC; teaching their cat new tricks; and always trying to live in the moment.
