Jackie Lightfield is a writer, designer and programmer with a long history in interactive media. Able to leap tall tales and faster than a speeding viral market, Jackie has used her super hero skills in the fight against mediocrity. She currently designs and produces interactive projects for mobile devices, and published Discover Norwalk, a 68 page color field guide to Norwalk, CT. Jackie has been at the forefront of design and development of human interactions with computers since the early 80's. Yes that means, before hard drives, and the Internet, and 8 bit color graphics. Her career, if you must label it, consists of serial entrepreneur adventures in startups, acquisitions and shut downs. Lightfield's body of work includes a wide variety of commercial software that most people have relegated to isle of misfit toys, and other productivity tools that were quickly assimilated into operating systems. Occasionally she has accepted consultant posts at the "C" level of technology companies and currently is satisfied with Chief Problem Solver. She speaks geek, marketing and English fluently, and often finds herself translating impossible production deadlines into improbable marketing hype.
Lightfield has written about technology, travel, politics for both print and online publications and journals. Her main communication work has been in advertising and marketing as an award winning copywriter. She began blogging about politics in 2006 at yourCT.com.
