Financial Transparency

Financial Transparency

In the spring of 2022, I announced on my live stream that all incoming money from subscriptions, ads, donations, “bits”, and resume reviews would 100% be donated to causes and projects which have a PRIMARY goal of elevating diversity in the tech indsutry.

I’ve created this page, which I will endeavor to keep updated on a monthly basis, to fully disclose income from the stream, and where that money is going.
