I’m Holly Peck. I’m a creative technologist, founder, and AI leader who makes leather jacket electronic music. 


Throughout my career, I’ve built cognitive AI systems for humanoid robots and created IP around ethical human-robot interaction. I’ve led engineering and design teams on the creation and delivery of AI Digital People. I co-founded a data start-up in New York and currently advise and invest in underrepresented technical founders. Often, I think about what makes us human. 


I am the daughter of NUIT. We are a synth-pop duo interested in sound, liminality, and the chthonic. 



In 2016, I founded Women Who Code Vancouver. In four years, I grew our community from 0 to over 3000 techlords. Together, we changed tech culture in Vancouver.



I have a background in anthropology. Once, I wrote a thesis on death rituals and symbolic immortality. 



I know too much about ikebana and Japanese Death Poetry.


In my spare time, I program analog synthesizers, do machine learning, develop 35mm film, and talk to rebellious thinkers vs. systems of power.
