Just in time for IO 2013, Google teamed up with Makers.com to feature leading female Googlers to encourage girls to consider a career in technology, as the world around us evolves faster than Moore's Law.
Makers.com showcases women who star in our world in every avenue of life; you can check out the range of experience they've documented in video form at makers.com.
In this video, VP of Engineering Anna Patterson tells how the daughter of a NASA engineer who expected to become a painter ended up as a senior engineer at Google leading the Android team, with a fateful day at the beach with her eventual husband and Google Founder Sergey Brin along the way . . .
Brilliant images were framed up by Studio G DP Jesse Eisenhardt; sets were artfully dressed by Michael Merryweather, local team assembled and wrangled by Jenn Thomas, and shoots were directed by Studio G EP Sinéad O'Mara, drawing out the stories and smiles that tug at the heartstrings.
Special thanks to the other editor on this project, Dan Melius, for helping our team at Studio G mange to create a set of five videos in three weeks with many Google Supremos throwing their two cents in early, often, and (way too) late!
