My Photo



My life is defined more by my past than my present. I'm a former Marine, a former programmer, a former network admin, a former barista, and a former bus driver. Currently I'm an amateur radio operator active in my community's emergency communications program and (according to my last mortgage refinance documents) a homemaker.

Yes, my mother is proud. Or she will be when she stops crying.


amateur radio, encryption, paranoia, slide rules and old calculators, computers and networking, the civil rights i'm not using today.
