Recent Activity  -


I have a diverse background, specializing in thoughtful and creative analytical solutions to challenges. I'm a teacher, a database administrator, an analyst, an actor, and a linguist. I enjoy challenges that have stumped everyone else, and building teams that overcome those hurdles. I sometimes color outside the lines, I avoid the limelight, and I prefer creativity in the workplace.

I learned that the word "salsa" in Korean means diarrhea. Which made Taco Tuesdays very weird with my teachers.
