Updated bio…

'Crazy Wisdom' Hawaiian Petroglyph. Doesn't he look happy? Perhaps he's crazy... perhaps he's right. Who knows. has been working with the web since 1996. She hasn’t written any books on the subject, but she has read a lot. A whole lot. The publishers of web-related books frequently send her thank you cards for the money she has dropped on their products. She is currently employed as the sole graphics person of the Atlanta-based implementation team for real estate related websites built by a California-based company called FNF, formerly called FNIS, who bought the former Atlanta-based company known as Com-stock Net Services where she originally worked–now there is a mouthful. Her bosses, of which there are now many, are remote, in California, and are known only as slight variations of voices over a conference call line and perhaps better known by their various cell-phone rings that go off during said conference calls, which happen first thing in the morning their time, but begin at what should be the lunch hour and drag through the afternoon her time, which is eastern time, which is because she is still located in the fabulous southern city of Atlanta, Georgia, which is a much nicer city than you might have been led to believe.

is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with bachelors degrees in Mass Communication and English: Writing. My English teacher once told me that two positives don’t make a negative. Two words for her: Yeah, right. Since nearly the day she left the ivory towers of UTC she has been taking classes and reading about computers and web publishing and design, and considering at the time of this writing, she can say that she read an entire textbook on CSS only yesterday, she sure feels like she is still in school. Her goal is to become a web publishing standards and compliance Guru, redesign the w3c’s website, and get a gig touring the world lecturing about how things ought to be done… related to web publishing, mostly, but probably with some colorful anecdotes about how to deal with remote management included. Her daily activities include stressing secretly over work that needs to be accomplished, stressing publicly over unreasonable goals and deadlines and moronic management decisions, relieving stress by random web and journal browsing and most likely ranting in her own journal or reading in the bathtub or working out to the soothing pep-talk of Leslie Sansone in some walking video.

When not otherwise busy, she can be found bothering her husband, , in some fashion. He graduated high school the same year she graduated college, how’s that for fun? Funnier that she knows exactly how many years over the typical four-year stint that she was in college, and thus the gap widens. Frequently hilarity ensues. Despite the age difference, the similarities and interests abound between then, and they probably would have been great friends, even if she wasn’t just so darned hot for him. Probably the truest test of love is her tolerance of his satanic little cat.

is easily annoyed by random IMs or even unexpected IMs from people she knows and loves and just didn’t have the psychic ability to realize that she had already decided she was biting the head off the next person who interrupted what she was doing. However, she seems to have amazing self-control of her temper, and thus usually ends up chatting somewhat, if abruptly, and all is well. She thinks she’s still on speaking terms with most people who had IM’d her, especially those of , who generally give her lots of leeway with her grumpiness.

Last but not least, if you want to know what she looks like, look at the pictures. She takes and posts tons of them, and if you’d like to read the prior drivel that was her profile, try this. Her favorite color is black, and she has a habit for reading (previously discussed) which you can support here. She also has an outrageous Target HomeStuff wishlist she keeps here.
