Jessica Naziri – Chic Meets Geek

Recently named one of INC’s 30 Inspiring Women in Tech, Jessica Naziri is the ultimate combination of geek and chic. Teaching tech to the masses through her own Tech Sesh platform, as well as in classrooms at the famed Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Jessica has figured out an almost magical way of translating the most complicated trends across technology and culture to laymen’s terms. Her work has been coveted by the likes Mashable (check out her tech themed wedding), Entrepreneur, Forbes, CBS, and more. On this installment of the Crush, the former start-up exec and technology anthropologist dishes on the secrets to her success, her experiences with sexism, and attempts at disconnecting from technology.
