My career started down a traditional path. After obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Carnagie Mellon University I spent a few years employed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory before returning back to school to obtain my Doctors of Philosophy in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I worked for tech giants Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and while I was happy I also felt like something was missing. For as long as I can remember, I have always been tinkering on side projects and daydreaming of turning them into companies one day.
In 2015 I decided to trade in security for uncertainty, flexibility for freedom and chase this crazy self-employment dream I've had. I tenured my resignation to create my company and became master of my own destiny.
As Chief Sarah at Sarah Tyler Digital I use my data science and mathematical modeling background to build interesting, ad supported websites to fit niche interests, all while enjoying my 15 second commute via fuzzy bunny slippers.
