I wrote my first line of code in BASIC on an Apple iiC, sitting in my parent’s basement. Soon after that moment, I wrote my first GOTO statement, sending that computer into a fiery fit of sparks and smoke (or something like that).
My actual childhood was far less destructive and surrounded by computers — that Apple iiC, my beloved TI 99/4A, and eventually an IBM ThinkPad. I also spent my childhood among books, reading anything that struck my interest. (I had and still have eclectic tastes.) My dream was to move into our town library.
Today, I am “middle-end” web developer who likes to write code, commit often, and make up my own titles. I specialize in developing CMS themes and WordPress editor customizations. I speak at technical conferences, blog about development, and write creative works focusing on life as a single mother by choice. In the little spare time that remains, I run, travel with my adventurous kid, enjoy live music, and advocate for the Oxford comma.
