I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where I received my BA from The Evergreen State College and my MA and PhD from University of Washington. I have also lived in New York, Paris, Copenhagen, London, Fort Worth, and Washington, DC. I now live in Maryland with my husband, daughter, and two cats. I drink a lot of hot tea and very much hope to go on a roller coaster again someday. 

Background image is of a DEC PDP-11/34 minicomputer, data drive storage cabinet, modem, a covered typewriter, and DECwriter terminal under a window with mustard yellow curtains open to show a sunny day. The photo was taken circa 1984 in the basement playroom of my childhood home.
