Sarah Sorensen grew up in the Bay Area watching the technology transformation emanating from the Silicon Valley. She went down south to attend the University of California at Los Angeles and to pursue a career in sports marketing. However, the pull of home was strong, so she returned to northern California and started a surprisingly equally exciting career in high tech. Working alongside technology visionaries, who were gracious enough to bring a non-engineer into their world, she discovered she loved conceptualizing technology and translating its value and benefits into terms that could be understood by all. It was in this vein that she set out to write her first book, The Sustainable Network, which she hopes will demystify the network and help everyone understand the role it's playing as we collectively tackle some our hardest environmental, social, political and economic problems. When not working, she loves her life with her husband and their two kids.
