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!) 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.
