Hi, I’m Anastasia, Ana or Ana Banana!

Previously, I've worked for Pixlee, Sequence, Vidyard & BlackBerry as a Software Engineer, 500px as a Product Manager, and Nspire as a UI/UX designer & Tech Lead. I've also started my own start-up.

I am currently studying Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo. This is an interdisciplinary program that teaches a combination of software engineering, mechanical engineering and computer engineering through the lens of user-centered design. Each term we take up unique four-month-long design projects focusing on a problem space and integrate concepts from each of our courses to build prototypes and iterate through designs.

I spend a lot of my free time DJing. If you want to read more about it, or learn how to get started with it too, you should check out my Medium post.

In the past, I've been selected as a BlackBerry Scholar - one of ten women entering STEM programs from hundreds of applicants from all over the world.

Interested in chatting more? Let me know at: me at asantsah dot com - I'd love to grab coffee or get on a call!
