About Lyndsey

After graduating from Amherst College with dual majors in Theater and Computer Science, Lyndsey started acting and modeling in NYC and soon became the first African-American model ever to land the prestigious Calvin Klein exclusive during fashion week. Shows such as Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and The Victoria’s Secret Show soon followed; as did campaigns for clients such as DKNY, Baby Phat, Covergirl, Sephora, and Paul Mitchell; and shoots for magazines such as W, Italian Vogue, and Glamour.

Although she currently devotes much of her time to her first love -- acting -- Lyndsey has also returned to her love for technology and now devotes the other half of her time to programming iOS apps for clients. She enjoys helping others with their code: She's ranked as one of the top iOS answerers on the #1 programming site, Stack Overflow; is a member of the prestigious iOS tutorial team of RayWenderlich.com; and has done video tutorials for kids co-starring the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg for Code.org. Lyndsey has been featured by CNN, The BBC, NPR, Good Morning America, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, and many other news outlets for both her computer programming skills and her efforts to promote diversity in tech. She has recently been named one of the 100 Women of the Year for both UK Elle and AskMen.com and has received a "Lifetime of Inspiration" award from Harvard University's Women in Business organization.
