I am an avid watch collector, and enjoy public speaking, especially on Workplace Diversity. enough to make it my business.  I spend a lot of time listening to live music, reading, and these days, working on building up my new venture.  
My employment theory: do what you love to do--the rest will follow.

I am working on an
anthology of stories about "escape."  If you are a writer, or are intrigued, click here.
I am one of five siblings, three sisters and a brother.   I'm the middle child, so I'm the diplomat, the peacekeeper and the mediator.  When I came out to Mom, Dad and the whole extended family back in '92, it actually brought us closer together.  We are a very close family.  I love my brother and sisters dearly, and my brothers-in-law and sister-in-law as well.  Mom and Dad have become my great friends in our later years--and they are among the greatest joys of my life.
Austin has brought me some of the greatest friends I have ever had.  Steve, (in a class of his own), Jack & Veek, Marty & Jerry, Lori & Brian, Karl, Heidi, Mo & Ron, Chuck, my bowling buddies, David & Chaz, among others, are a big part of why Austin is my home.  If Texas is "a whole 'nother country" then Austin is my favorite "tourist destination" with a wealth of cool people and cultural diversions for all. 

Some of my friends used to work at Tivoli Systems, Inc .  There is a mailing list just for them--if you worked there, you can join below!
