In 2013 Elle left her day job to dive into painting full-time. Prior to that, she had helped design Mailbox's iPhone app, redesign Uber's iOS app, and scale the storytelling platform, Medium; before startups, she spent five years at IDEO. The TGD alum has continued to make art and speak about her journey—and she’s written a book and created the 100-Day Project.
