Lorena Ramírez-López Full Stack Developer // Media Preservation Specialist

About

Bio: Full stack web developer with extensive background in film, television, and media. I trained as a Moving Image Preservation Specialist where I specialized in the preservation and restoration of digital and software-based artworks. I shifted my area of focus to coding because I wanted to develop tools and technologies that expand information and access of media and art to new sectors and communities.
