Every Tuesday Ashley Boalch will showcase tech savvy movers & shakers.
While many of us have talents that are limited to our multi-faceted smartphones, in our weekly Tech Tuesday segment we’ll learn about their favorite gadgets and apps. Let’s explore how these advancements simplify their lives.
Tell us about yourself
I recently graduated with my M.A. in National Security and Intelligence and currently work as a government contractor for the Deputy Secretary of Defense for C3 & Cyber.
What are your passions in life?
I have a passion for staying active. There is so much to see and do, particularly in the DMV area. I honestly don’t know how people can ever be bored. In my opinion and with limited life experience, I’ve come to the personal conclusion that if I’m only given a finite amount of time on Earth, I want to ensure I make the most of it.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I’m Mr. DC. I don’t throw that around a lot. Other than that, I’m pretty much an open book. What you see is what you get!
What is your current go-to gizmo, gadget or app?
Currently, my favorite app is Timehop. It’s an app that links to your various social media accounts and sends you daily snapshots of what you said or did on that particular day over the years. It’s practical value is nearly nonexistent, but it is without a doubt entertaining (and humbling depending on what you said when you were younger). It’s also a nice little reality check for where you’ve come from, how far you’ve come, and how far you may yet have to go.
Where can we find it?
“Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.” – Abraham Lincoln
