Bio
Hi, I'm Lucy. I'm currently traveling around the world and investing out of my fund Backend Capital. I was named Forbes 30 Under 30 for founding scale.com. Before that, I dropped out of Carnegie Mellon for the Thiel Fellowship, later working at Quora and becoming the first female product designer at Snapchat. In my spare time, I've made some apps that over 10 million have used, covered by Business Insider, Mashable, CNet, Wired, and more.
