Keynotes

We're excited and proud to announce our keynote speakers for EMPEX LA!

Emma Cunningham

Keynote

Emma is a Senior Software Engineer at Second Spectrum, where she gets to solve all kinds of fun problems around how to build compelling data visualization and analytics apps for clients like the NBA and the LA Clippers. She is actively involved in various STEAM education equity initiatives in low-income communities across Los Angeles, including co-organizing YouthBuild Charter School of California’s CODEChella, serving on the Advisory Board at the Critical Design and Gaming School, teaching robotics and programming at Heart of Los Angeles, and co-directing Code Hawk Camp, an inclusive and free summer computer science camp for students in South LA.

Sarah Gray

Keynote

Sarah has been a software developer since 2001, when she was spit out of grad school from ITP, NYU’s interactive technology program. Prior to that, she’d been directing experimental theater, which gradually led her deeper and deeper into technology and code. Since 2001, she’s worked on a cross-section of projects across different industries. Highlights include building medical software at Mt. Sinai Hospital; leading the technology integration for startup Trunk Club when they were acquired by Nordstrom; and working on Hillary Clinton’s tech team in Brooklyn. In 2017 she learned how to program for the Ethereum blockchain, because in The Future (TM) we will all be on the blockchain. Sarah’s career is predicated on a mix of exploring the new while maintaining solid software development practices in order to make projects come to life. Because of her dual background in coding and experimental performance, she is constantly playing with forms, and putting together new, short-lived (theater-life-span) projects. We’re excited for Sarah to bring her breadth of experience to keynote at Empex LA!
