About

The computer was my first passion. I grew up with the internet, chatting online, reading websites and playing with new technologies. As with many others in this field, much of my skills have been self-taught.


Philosophy

Design & Code

I design quality websites that balance text and visual elements. Aesthetically, I prefer elegant and uncluttered designs with attention to detail. On the backend, I use clean and valid code, compatible with most browsers and resolutions.

This website was hand-coded in Notepad++, with valid XHTML and CSS, and built on PHP. I use the jQuery JavaScript library.

Miscellaneous

I am the wife of a great husband. We live in the mountain west region of the United States, and we enjoy playing video games and MMORPGs together.

My type on the Myers-Briggs Indicator is INFJ. Among my favorite authors are Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein and J.R.R. Tolkien. Writings on subject matters such as biology, sociology, psychology and anthropology endlessly fascinate me. I take interest in eastern as well as western cultures.
