Once upon a time, I was a flight attendant for United Airlines. Oh, and a licensed manicurist too.
I’m a 6 on the Enneagram, which is a scarily-accurate assessment of my personality. And if you don’t know what the Enneagram is, I guarantee that at some point, I’ll try and explain it to you.
I’m a worrier. I worry a lot, about almost everything. Typical Enneagram 6. I’ve proven that worrying works, however, because almost nothing I worry about ever happens.
I love chocolate and any day that includes it is a good one. The darker and more bitter it is, the happier it makes me.

I took 2nd place in a district-wide typing contest in high school. How about a moment of silence for the old IBM Selectric…

I got my first computer in 1987. It was an IBM 286, with an amber video display terminal, running MS-DOS. I was immediately hooked on technology – still am.
In the 5th grade, I won an award in American History from the Daughters of the American Revolution. I earned a medal for it, which I still have to this day. Did I mention that I’m a bit of a packrat?
