Shannon, Cotswalds U.K.

Principal Enterprise Architect and Computer Scientist. I am an uber geek that grew up with a main frame in the garage and pre-TSR80 homebuilt computers. For a number of years I worked as a paramedic in EMS services in both rural and metro environments. I enjoy teaching, and have been a certified instructor for AHA Basic Life support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support Courses. In my (not so) copious spare time, I fly fixed wing aircraft, sailplanes, and hangliders. I’m also a CMAS certified SCUBA diver. Books are a favorite pastime (I should own stock in amazon.com!) I have raised over a dozen wolves, so it should be no surprise that most of my friends have 4 legs and a tail. I am on the board of directors for the Florida Great Pyrenees Club Rescue, a 501c charitable organization that has rescued over 1200 Great Pyrnees and pyr-mix dogs. When not playing with my furry friends, I am often busy building mechanical (robotic) ones, tinkering with MAME cabinets, painting Sumi-e, or fiddling around with a half dozen different musical instruments. Jazz drumming is my current musical passion.I am a self professed “Steampunk Girl” and am an avid fan of steampunk engineering and subculture. I informally practice Taoism and Zen Buddhism.
