Who I am

I'm Valerie Asensio. ¶ I started out in tech, developing software on intense and interesting projects at GM (dealer systems), Kodak (ASIC firmware engineer), IBM (OS device driver dev) and Motorola (SoC firmware engineer). I then spent a lot of time romping around LAMP stack web development, content and publishing at a newsstand magazine called Ride Texas.
