About Lyndsey

After graduating from Amherst College with dual majors in Theater and Computer Science, Lyndsey started acting and modeling in New York City and soon became the first African-American model to ever land an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein. 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, and Sephora; and shoots for magazines such as W, Italian Vogue, and Glamour.

Lyndsey now splits her time between acting and freelance iOS Software Engineering. While still making time for her weekly acting classes, auditions, and bookings, she currently builds apps for clients such as Susan G. Komen Foundation, AIDS Walk, and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in her role as Lead iOS Engineer for Rallybound. She’s also ranked in the top 2% of question answerers on Stack Overflow; is a member of the RayWenderlich.com iOS tutorial team; 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. Her next big project? She’s written a screenplay based on real life events that’s currently in pre-production.
