Tea Reggi


I'm an New York based software engineer and artist. I put together a night-time monthly tech-meetup in Astoria. My work intertwines technology with artistic expression, and outside of it, I delve into yoga, meditation, and spirituality, particularly Buddhism. Driven by socialist values, and I'm exploring worker-owned cooperatives. Aspiring to make a meaningful impact through my engineering skills.

I'm passionate about web standards, JavaScript, web components, Node.js, and Deno. I experiment a lot with newer web technologies and frameworks. Currently I work at Github πŸ™! I've worked at a bunch of companies big and small in the past: Twitter 🐦 , MongoDB πŸƒ , Hello Alfred πŸ¦‡ , American Express πŸ’³ , ZX Ventures 🍺 , Holstee πŸƒ .
