The first time Lani was published was in Pre-K. It was a poem about Barbie heads, it was awful, and she felt so accomplished. She wrote competitively throughout school, joining the newspaper team in sixth grade and sticking with it through her BA in English from the University of Texas. Lani's written content since 2002, long before content writing was “a thing.” But the Barbie poem was the highlight of her career, if we’re being honest. ;) Writing is in her blood, it’s the core of her identity, and in her final days on Earth, you’ll find her in a nursing home, banging something out on the typewriter and complaining about remembering a time before Twitter existed, and that it’s cold in here, meh!

Now, Lani's the COO of an entrepreneur news magazine, The American Genius, and co-founded the Big Ass Social Happy Hour (tech networking events), the Remote Digital Jobs group on Facebook, and the Austin Digital Jobs group with roughly 50K members, and quarterly events that attract an average of 500 attendees.
