About Me

I’ve been active in the web world one way or another since 1993, when I created my first awkward and embarrassing hand-coded HTML page. I’m sure some of my early GeoCities efforts linger in the internet archives. I started blogging in 1999, before there was a readymade platform for it; switched to Blogger when it was released; and then moved to LiveJournal in early 2002, where I’ve lived happily ever since. I also have a passion for WordPress and its endless extensibility – I am a huge fan of the plug-in concept!

In my professional life I spent the last several years as a Business Analyst working on process improvement projects and software implementations. I’m now a Database Manager at a performing arts nonprofit, where I keep their CRM/ticketing database happily ticking along and also integrate it with other applications and websites.

In my personal life, I’m a mom, a writer, a horse-lover, and a lifelong learner. My daughter is the inspiration for much of what I do. I never thought I’d be the kind of person who said that kind of thing. I write fiction, ride horses when possible, and volunteer for causes that are dear to my heart.

(Unfortunately, only silly photos of me exist. Silly photos, and photos of me on horses — which should tell you all you need to know about me.)
