Florence Okoye– We all know her as our beloved LDC member & comic fan in the evenings, but by day Florence works as a UX Designer and spends the rest of her time writing science fiction, messing around with Arduinos and web technologies whilst studying dead languages and computer science. She is interested in projects that encourage public engagement with technology and the arts (in particular comic art!), especially those that explore the intersection of minority experiences.
She is also Events and Marketing Manager for the MancsterCon sequential art convention, and has created a series of zines herself.
