Amie Danielle Dansby
Amie Danielle Dansby is from Dallas, TX with a background in Game Programming and Simulation and started her career at Marvel Studios as the first female intern the video-game department at Marvel ever hired, working on Captain America and X-Men Destiny, she transitioned to Research and Development for development work on the Xbox and Playstation. She is a full time software developer from Dallas, TX and active in the maker, LEGO, hacker and cosplay communities, and continue to obsess over new technologies. She is no stranger to viewing the future, projects and the world for more than they could be. From her Tesla chip implant hack to being on LEGO Masters, she continues to push the boundaries of tech and doing something that hasn't been done, even when others didn’t always see her vision. The one thing that makes dreams impossible to achieve is the fear of failure. The adult that still play with LEGO and makes/dresses in costumes. Working on cosplay costumes has helped her become a better programmer, teaching her to finish a project, and always better herself, and never be afraid to be a beginner. Tech is sexy. Amie stared and fully funds a scholarship for girls in STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) through the National Videogame Museum located in Frisco, TX. She educates through 3D Printing, game development, computer science, LEGO Mindstorms robotics, wearable tech, hacking and cosplay. Encouraging others to experiment and learn through trying, making mistakes, and trying again. Embrace Failure is a philosophy she's adopted, there's no such thing as failure, only learning experiences.
