Hi! I'm Joana Gutierrez.
I was born in Manhattan, spent my childhood in Queens, my teenage years in Long Island, and I am now starting a family in Brooklyn.
I am, without a doubt - a New Yorker.
I learned about resourcefulness, generosity, and an incredible work ethic from my naturalized Filipino parents.
I like to observe and execute on patterns so I became a Partner at a hedge fund. I realized that I wanted to take a chance at crafting solutions so now I'm trying trying my hand in technology, as well as other endeavors. I've been enjoying the journey so far...
