A little bit about me

I lived in Pennsylvania for thirty years before moving to Washington in 2006. Since then I've spent most of my time working at Microsoft, where the challenges are invigorating and the diversity is rewarding. When people from all over the world tackle the same problems, or even laugh at the same jokes, there's an element of magic there.

As far as my personality goes, this site pretty much captures it. I'm a geek, introvert, and Francophile. I'm sometimes opinionated, often quirky, and forever in touch with my childhood spirit.
