A native of Silicon Valley, Tammy spent her very first day in NYC at the Birchbox HQ. The newest addition to our Tech Team, Tammy came to her field by accident—after finishing her college pre-med coursework early (who does that?!), she occupied her time by enrolling in a computer science class. The rest, as they say, is history. Here in New York, Tammy is anxious to satisfy her coffee addiction by determining the best coffee microroasters around. Have any suggestions for her? Let us know in the comments!
Tammy Hwang, Technical Product Manager
Hometown: Los Altos, California
Fun fact: I can ride a bike, but only barely. It’s always questionable if I’ll survive the experience without cuts and bruises (so far, I haven’t).
Beauty Confession: The best thing about having bangs is not having to pluck my eyebrows.
Currently loving: Oribe Dry for adding texture to my hair, which is straighter and flatter in New York than in California for some reason.
Worth the splurge: ExfoliKate by Kate Somerville. It scrubs your face to a glow, but is gentle enough to use regularly.
Best Beauty Trick: I like to try new makeup at night before going to bed. I’m already about to wash my face, and I can work out a new look long before I’m trying to rush out the door.
