I'm a freelance application designer, technical witer and photographer. I live in Santa Barbara, California with my husband Dan and our little cat Penny.
For more information about my professional services, please see the Consulting section.
I come from a family of makers. At any given time, I have more projects in the works than I can count, and my hands are nearly always busy with something. I've been fascinated with photography since I was about eight years old, and I've been knitting and making quilts for just about as long. I love to try new things, especially if they are tactile in some way. Recently, I've been learning to draw and paint watercolors. I also like to spin my own yarn, make felt, use my kilns for glass fusing and enameling, and dabble in collage, printmaking, and book arts.
My husband Dan and I love to cook, travel and photograph together. We've taken a number of memorable trips together: most recently, India in the spring of 2012, as well as Thailand in 2008, our honeymoon to Spain and Portugal in the fall of 2002, and our trip to Italy the year before. We've also fit in a couple of great short trips to New Orleans in 2005 and 2007. We're not yet sure what our next adventure will be, but I'm rooting for more time in Asia.
