Hi! I'm Saskia. I care about empowering people and making things. I do this by designing experiences, engaging communities, curating resources, telling stories, facilitating connections, and building relationships.
I work at the intersection of education, creativity, and technology, focusing on building and managing learning experiences, resources, and strategy. I’m a believer in lifelong, hands-on learning, a defender of equity & inclusion, and a seeker of magic in the everyday. I’m also a strong advocate for uplifting women & girls (of all definitions) — especially in education and tech — by equipping them with the tools, experience, and mentorship they need to invent their futures.
Currently, my work centers on creative learning, creative computing, & AI robotics. I’m also a Mozilla Open Leader, and I lead creative coding workshops for educators with Wonderful Idea Co. Previously, I worked as the Outreach Manager at the Scratch Foundation, supporting creative computing with Scratch at the Lifelong Kindergarten Group of the MIT Media Lab. I've also been an educator, instructional designer, graphic designer, facilitator, and program/project manager. I have an M.Ed. From the Harvard Graduate School of Education in Technology, Innovation, and Education. I also like writing. And interior design. And tacos. (Okay well really just all the foods.) 🍳😍
My preferred pronouns are she, her, & hers.
I live and work in the Bay Area, but you can find me on the internets as @sleggss: Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, & Pinterest // or by email below. If you’re into creativity, learning with your hands, adventures, and/or Queen Bey, say hi!
